You can't carbon flash then powder coat....or at least it would not do any good, the powdercoat color is your final look.May I suggest anyone who is going to get their wheels repainted that they consider doing it with the Carbon Flash paint to go with the rest of the carbon flash on the rest of the car. ie: vents, rear defuser, spoiler, mirriors, hood vents, grill etc etc. I don't think this would appear to be too much Carbon Flash and the wheels might look a little better. Then get them powder coated before putting them back on. Just some thoughts.
Powder coat is a process not a color. Powder can be offered in any color, the only issue it's not very bright/ shinny. imo.Thanks for that glen e. I thought the powder coat would offer protection for the repaint. My ignorance. What colour would the powder coat be then. I thought it was like clear coating and it offered more protection and not change the base colour. dahhh for me.;
then this is what I'd do as soon as I bought the black wheels....Actually they now have clear powder coat. My wheels have 3 layers, powder coat black, silver paint then powder coat clear.
I'm pretty sure you can't do a metallic powder coat and carbon flash is nothing more than a metallic black but you could easily do a carbon flash base with a powder clear. Call TPJ, TPJ, they can fill you in on what's possible

Yes please save your $495 and get powder coated when you get the car.While I am a while away from placing my order, it is information like this that makes this site so valuable to those like me doing their homework. I have learned that instead of paying $495 extra for black painted wheels, its better to just take delivery of the car and get the standard wheels black powder coated immediately.
Right now, I am thinking about a Z51 convertible with an all black theme, except for a gray interior.
