So my steering wheel butterfly was pretty beat up and I could not bear to put it back on a Dallas Custom restored wheel. I liked the idea of powder coat, but as was pointed out here on the World the detail is sometimes lost with powder coating. I decided to Cerakote the butterfly in order to retain the detail on the small ridges on either side of the butterfly. After I aluminum oxide bead blasted the metal, a gun guy buddy of mine baked on Cerkote graphite black.

I think it turned out well, but I wanted to give a shout out to the World for educating me and inspiring me to roll up my sleeves and just do it. Krylon or powder coating would have been sufficient, but it is the sickness.

I've painted a few before and they come out looking nice, but do tend to wear or chip after a period of time.

Yours turned out nice. Keep us apprised as to how well the coating holds up.

Cerikote is tough stuff but SEM trim black is the “correct” paint. Not bashing your choice. My car is not even close to stock.

Very nice.

The curing temps are cool enough I can try a coat on my 3D printing.

I like Many cerakotes are air cured. Thanks for posting and am looking forward to other applications and uses.
