your talking about from leaking right well theres a guy on here who did it and i read on it and it worked just use high temp silicone it should be the black kind and scrap off all the old seal stuff on the rim after u get it all off get a card board box or something and cut it the size to fir in between the gap so you can spread the silicone and put a good coat i used like 1 1/2 to make sure its sealed real good and let it sit for 3 or 4 days or a week if you want to make sure that its like a rubbery it works tho :biggrin:

Craftsman's powder coat gun instructions..

What parts can be powder coated?
aluminum
steel
cast iron
Copper
Gold
Brass
Bronze
Nickel
Stainless Steel
CHROME PLATED METALS so yes i guess you could.

High Temperature Tape usage:

Hight temperature tape is used like conventional masking tape and applied to areas where you do not want powder.For masking large areas you can use ALUMINUM FOIL and hight temp tape
NOTE:The masking tape or aluminum foil is applied before powder application and removed AFTER the part is removed from the oven and cool

All depends on what the silicone can take for heat.I know the gun i have it calls for the oven to be at 400 degrees to bake.If you really wanna take a chance go for it but to me if your spending the time to powder coat the wheels might as well take the seal of.There's post's on how to do this so i wont get into it.Refer to the "How 2 re-seal" post
