right around 8 grand for the machine, chemicals can get expensive for large projects.

they do offer little kits for the do it yourself guy for pretty decent pricing.

or if it is something small you can send it to me. pay shipping back and forth and i would run it through for you

Well, that's really not as bad as I expected.......by the time you assemble good quality wood stripping systems they are between $25000 to $50000. Good friend of mine has a fairly decent sized car repair shop and decided to put in a "small" paint booth for doing fenders, bumpers, no overall shoots. He's right in the middle of a good sized town. By the time he met all the state and city standards he was well past $80000. Takes time and a lot of production to pay for all that.
Just curious on your chrome system. Do you know what the chrome like material is made of? I'm mostly just wondering how it holds up....... wear/tear......
The Motochrome is (if I remember right) like a polyester with real metal in it.......

You didn't even mention your necessary water supply system.
Its not an easy or cheap system to deal with.

As much as I wanted to get into this system I will leave it too you and ship my parts back to you.
