Phoenix Specialty Coatings' Brand New Introduction Video Just Released

By CudaChick1968

Just Released!!!

Check out the brand new Introduction to Phoenix Specialty Coatings ...

http://youtu.be/BZRg3LIEuT8

It's a terrific overview of my powder coating shop's extensive services including multi-color powder coating work, Mopar parts restorations and custom one-offs. TONS of powder porn, some live footage, decent tunes and a bit of fun!

Your comments are welcome and appreciated! It took several hours to put it together ... but it took six years to do the work that's in it! If you see your parts or your ride, give me a shout out!

Visit the ALL NEW PhoenixSpecialtyCoatings.com Website!!! Feb 13, 2011

By CudaChick1968

The ALL NEW PhoenixSpecialtyCoatings.com website debuted early this morning!

The old site served me well for a few years. After the Feedback page disaster last October that some of you are already aware of which caused the loss of 3 1/2 YEARS of customers' comments (not to mention that weird Gallery layout), it was well past time for a big face lift. My shop has been growing so it was time my internet presence started keeping up with the pace.

There are lots of changes and new features throughout including tons of photos, a new Work Samples Gallery, dozens of comments, before and after pictures ... there's even a Customer Swag Survey so you can tell me what kind of freebies / PSC merchandise you want to enjoy along with your finished parts. Most past customers will see at least something that's highly familiar if you look in the right spot.

Please take a few moments and browse through it. I'm anxious to hear what you think! I've already worked out a couple little bugs but I'm sure there are more. Comments and suggestions for improvement are always welcome and appreciated. All previous suggestions received about my old website over the years have been incorporated into the new one (within my limited ability), and it can only get better with your added input. I'm here to serve you.

Thank you for your business!

If you haven't looked at my website yet, you'll find hundreds of work sample photos and lots of great ideas for your own valve covers in the Gallery, a thorough ballpark Price List, over 6,500 colors to choose from - even custom matching (Color Charts tab), and lots and lots of reviews by my valued customers.

What our customers have to say ........

Subject: [BOG] Powdercoating Feedback - 2 Thumbs Up!
Date: 6/7/2007 10:04:59 P.M. Central Daylight Time
From: harry and the rest is made up to protect his privacy @ xxx dot com
To: BarracudaOwners@yahoogroups.com


Well folks, it looks like I'm number 000001 from the BOG to test out the services of our very own Leanna ~ The CudaChick and her sidekick Billy's new Powdercoating business. I just got back my intake manifold and was impressed with three things:

1 - The quality of the work. Billy personally called me to confirm
it was OK to "clean-up" my manifold before coating it. This service was included in the price quoted. It came out GREAT!

2 - The speed of getting my part in and out of their shop. They got my manifold last Friday and it was back out via UPS this Monday afternoon. Unheard of… Weekend service in today's auto service environment??!!

3 – The reasonable price charged for services rendered. I paid about the same/ a little less, including shipping to and from BFE, as I would have to use a sort-of local shop.

Aside from the quality, the time service was far superior with
Phoenix Specialty Coatings. I really appreciated the speedy and exceptional service I received. They will have me a customer for all my Powdercoating service needs!! I highly recommend them to each and every BOG member. Here's a plug:
