Phoenix Specialty Coatings' Brand New Introduction Video Just Released

By CudaChick1968

Just Released!!!

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

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!

Oct '09 Powder Coat Special -- Valve Covers

By CudaChick1968

You all asked for it so the Valve Cover Special is BACK!!!!

For all 8-cylinder valve cover jobs arriving between today and October 31, 2009, members can enjoy a 15% labor discount. (Yes, that's for both big and small block setups -- even hemis!) For all 6-cylinder valve covers, motortopia members are entitled to a whopping 20% off!

I'm not discriminating against the V-8 guys ... just tossing out a little enticement to hammer the point home that the new oven's ready for big parts!!! (The only way some of those 6-cylinder valve covers woulda fit in the old oven is if I cut them in half so this is a good development and saves me a lot of welding around here haaaaaa -- YES of course I'm kidding!)

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.

Join the ranks of happy PSC customers and call or write for your free quote today! Be sure to tell me you're a motortopia member to qualify for this month's great deal on valve covers. There are quite a few other work sample photos here on my profile too, and a new shop introduction video I just put the finishing touches on (see the home page of my website).

Thanks to and its great membership! You love the work and I love doing it for ya.

Free color swatches are always available for the asking! (See the website's Gallery for work samples and to view actual parts coated with in-stock powders.)

A VERY special thank you goes out to member Terry O [] for taking me up on the February valve cover discount. I hope to get your L82s finished up and back to you shortly, and that the work exceeds all of your expectations.

Thank you all in advance for helping to make March a record-setting month here at PSC! I appreciate and value your business!!!
