I am a college student with access to a bead blaster and all the essential powder coating equip. Is it possible to powder coat on top of the translucent orange after it is blasted????? [confused]

if it's blaster, there shouldn't be any orange left on the wheels...

powdercoating the wheels is possible ;)

i am pretty sure that between the media blasting and the heat from the oven the size and shape well change. also pending on the media you can deform or warp the metal. you would be alot better of using a chem. to take the anodizing off. anyway i could be wrong i hope i am cause them wheels are high as a cats back. good luck
