Yes you can, make sure the shop you take it to will do it though. If it's polished, don't worry about it. I'd ask your shop first if it were chromed.

The areas not to be powdercoated will have to be masked off, I'm sure they use a special masking that can take the baking process.

I have a powdercoating system from Eastwood and an old stove to bake in, so the parts have to be able to fit in the stove. I've done most of the front suspension for my '55 Chevy Pickup


Powder just going in

Just make sure the oven you use isn't the home one...lol. The powercoating system needs a dedicated oven...no food cooking afterwards.
