This instructable will cover how to powder coat a generic aluminum landing gear that many radio control airplanes come with.  I did this to make the plane look a little better then the normal bare aluminum look that most planes have.  I did the powder coating at TechShop Detroit, in Allen Park, MI. 

I made it at TechShop

Step 1: Take off the landing gear

To start with take off the landing gear and remove everything from it including axles and any other fasteners.

To do the power coating, you need to get some TSP cleaner, acetone and nitrile rubber gloves in addition to somewhere you can powder coat.
