I started powder coating as a hobby, coating the brakes and engine parts on my 350Z. After seeing my work, several of my friends wanted stuff done, and it has grown from there into a custom powder shop. My wife Teresa and I have a small shop with big customer service. Additionally, we use only the highest quality powders and equipment available.
Teresa and I have been married since 1994. She helps with all phases, but particularly with preparation and shipping of completed parts. If you let us earn your business, I can assure you that you won’t be disappointed.
I graduated from Jacksonville University with a degree in computer information systems in 1987. Upon graduation, I entered the US Navy, and became a Naval Aviator. During my 10 year Navy career, I was an aircraft commander onboard the E-6A (Boeing 707), LC-130 (Antarctica snow ski equipped Hercules) and SA-227 Metroliner. Upon completion of my military service, I was hired as a pilot at Delta AirLines, where I currently I have flown the MD-88, 727, 737, 757, 767, 767-400 and 777. I am a Captain on the 717 currently. Although I am an active airline pilot, I still find time to run the powdercoating shop, as it is a true passion of mine.
I have been a lifelong auto enthusiast and am well versed in automobile customization. In addition to supercharging my 350Z, I have also installed superchargers on another 350Z and a G35, along with countless other modifications. After selling the 350Z, I purchased a 2005 Corvette. It was been a long modification journey on it as well, with a full widebody kit, custom paint, supercharger and other performance modifications, along of course, with some custom powdercoating, including the wheels, calipers, intake manifold and fuel rail covers. After completing the Corvette, I bought a Nissan 370z as a daily driver/weekend track car, and that has since morphed into a full fledged race car.
