Sounds like I am doing fenders and a tank and he has asked if I would consider doing rims as well. Not knowing how long that would take makes it hard for me to price that out--I don't want to go real high and scare him off the whole job but on the flip side, I don't want to be too low and end up working for hours for little profit. I've gotten pretty good at pricing fenders and tanks but this is an unknown for me. I really don't want to get into hours of sanding them though. If I can convince him to go the powder coating route I think that maybe the best for both of us. Wishful thinking but, if I got them super clean, could I spray an etching primer and make it stick without sanding?? Follow that by a coat of sealer and then the bc/cc. My guess is no but, not sure.

i usually add 30% to what my powder coater charges me if that helps
Thanks!! I am going to push him towards the powder coating route.
