Team Powder Coating
powder coating work done on a few phones, I met with John of
Team Powder Coating. He graciously spent time with me
explaining the process and his experience while showing me
his shop. Consequently, I gave him a few Western Electric
parts and waited. The results were fabulous...even
considering I am a hard to please "purest" type collector
with refinishing or re-plating almost dirty words. But when
necessary, John is the man. Each time thereafter, I have had
the same experience. Consistent color, matching closely to
WE paint, excellent work and wonderful end product.
