At my last co-op job we had full powdercoating facilities. I pulled off
everything that was practial and pc'd it. Its been almost a year and its

I would not suggest baking in a kitchen oven though, an industrial oven
should be used. I've also seen very large things done outside on a sunny
day in a makeshift oven make out of aluminum.
