    What Colour to Powdercoat TOM Legs

    Giving my TOM a bit of a refresh and looking at powdercoating the legs gold.
    Went to two different powdercoaters and didnt really like the gold they had as an option.
    Both didn't look too bad when tyou took it out in the sun but as you know pins hide in the dark corner of the games room.
    Anybody had experience in a decent gold for TOM legs.

        What about brass/gold coloured chroming/electro plating? More expensive than powder coating though.

              I had mine powder coated in Metalic Gold with A Crystal Clear top coat in 2016. I found the receipt but they didn't put the exact colour name on it.
              see -picture.

                I'd go with Electroplating if it's in the budget. If not do a search for dulux powdercoat. If you can find and buy a nice one online the powdercoaters will be happy to do it for you.

                  Brass is problematic to keep clean and avoid tarnishing. If I had my time again, I'd look at the powder coat option

                              Most panel beaters can apply a clear over the brass plating anyway. Not too expensive I would imagine, but then again.
