Who is Powdercoat Man? Other than being a super hero, I am a retired electrical engineer who worked for a major local company in Minneapolis designing electronic circuits for 39 years. I love to fabricate, build, weld, paint, and wire anything automotive in my shop. My shop is where I do the powdercoating.
I have three rules that seem to work for my customers and me.
- I don’t take anything apart. If I do, I will either break it or you won’t know how to put it back together.
- I don’t pick your colors. I’m an engineer. I can’t match my shirt to my pants. Just ask my wife.
- Everyone leaves happy one way or another.
Powdercoat Man doing what he enjoys… cycling up mountain passes.
I have been an avid bike rider for 40 years. I have done a lot of bike touring, starting with a cross country trip from Oregon to Virginia when I was a teenager. That was a 4246 mile trip. After that, I was hooked and continued touring for many years with trips all over the western US and Europe. My pride and joy is a custom bike made by Chris Kvale in 1978, which has tens of thousands of miles on it.
Building hot rods has been my passion for the last 20 years. Currently I am into traditional hotrods, as they were built in the 1950’s and 1960’s. My favorite website dedicated to traditional rides that I like to hang out on is the H.A.M.B. http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/
I like to take a car/project and repair, modify, weld, paint, or whatever it takes to get a car that looks and runs great. I am my own best customer for powdercoating 🙂
