Car Parts You Can Have Powder Coated

Powder Coating by Frank T. Car Parts

There are a lot of car parts other than rims that can be powder coated for a custom look and added durability.

Cars are often more than just a vehicle that gets you where you’re going—custom cars are a statement about who you are, what you like, and how you want to be presented while you’re on the road. There are many ways to customize your vehicle, one of which is through powder coating your car parts. Different parts can be given different hues and effects that tailor the look to your personality and design preferences for a cohesive look that gets people excited.


The most common car parts that are powder coated are the rims. Rims are a significant statement piece on any custom car, so it just makes sense to use powder coating as a way to help them stand out and keep them tied into the design of the vehicle’s custom work. Powder coating is an excellent way to also add a layer of protection and keep the rims in beautiful shape for years. Due to this, it’s no wonder that many car enthusiasts choose powder coating for their rims.


Metal car accessories are also a great option for when you want to powder coat a custom piece. A gear shift knob is one option, especially since these accessories experience heavy daily use and can wear down quickly. A well-maintained custom shift knob that has been powder coated will maintain its look for a long time and impress anyone that sees it. One of the other common car parts that can be powder coated is a trailer hitch. These are small, unassuming pieces that most people don’t think twice about, but trailer hitches undergo a lot of stress and wear, so a powder coat is just what it needs to stay in good shape for many years. Hitches need to bear heavy loads, and they become dangerous once they begin to rust and degrade. Powder coating will stave off these issues, keeping the kitsch in top form.

Engine Parts

For those who want their car parts to look their best no matter what, many engine parts can also be powder coated. This can be a fun surprise to display at a car show, creating a unique and exciting look that is hidden beneath the hood of the car. It can also just be a thrilling secret for your eyes only—the choice is yours! It can be done in fun and enchanting colors, or go full chrome and create a shiny and clean aesthetic that gets people talking. Oil pans and springs are great candidates for powder coating, and engine covers are a great choice if you have one.
