  1. These are the types of videos I enjoy watching. I'll keep looking for the video, but I would prefer seeing the process for taking an older, greasy, oily part, (like the valve cover on my 1979 Ford Mustang Ghia 2.3L; hint, hint, wink, wink), and powder coating it from start to finish. I also have concerns about using the oven. My wife and I cook food in there. Using the primary oven in the home can't possibly be safe to use for cooking once it's been used for powder coating. Thoughts, ideas, suggestions.
