Thread: My Hydro Dipped Bezels!
06-28-2011, 05:23 PM #11
After I read this last night I googled the hydro dipping process. It said it took like 3 to 4 weeks to get it done. Did it take you that long to get your stuff back? I saw one pattern that looked like snake skin that came in a brushed aluminum color that I may look into. Let us know how the durability is of this stuff.

I got quotes from companies in Texas and back east and they quoted 3-4 weeks. Mainly because you had to ship them the item - so it could take a week to ship if you sent it ground. Then they would have to ship it back.
I did finally find to places in phoenix... Fesler Built is a custom hot rod shop in Scottsdale and they quoted me 3 weeks - Triad quoted me a week and a half and thats about what it took.
If you can find someone local and depending on their work load - might take less time. The process is simple - they sand the part, etch it, apply base coat, dip, and finally add a clear coat.
