About ProKote Indy

We've been building street rods, competition engines, hot-rods, bikes, aircraft engines, and other scary things for a long, long time. Actually, it was our frustration with getting quality coating done for our own stuff that got us in this business in the first place! So we REALLY understand how important YOUR individual project is. Unlike production outfits, we actually ENJOY talking to customers! Call us today about your ideas. read more

What clients say

"I had a very specific color that I wanted to have powdercoated on my rotors. I had been to several other companies and then found Pro Kote. Not only did they create the color I needed but they did it in record time and the rotors look amazing. They are the only powdercoaters I trust with my projects."

The powdercoating process

PRO-KOTE INDY is a "custom powder coater", meaning that we specialize in individual projects and not as much on production work. Whereas many powder coaters offer a few colors, we have access to literally thousands of colors, textures, pearls, "flip-flops", candies, and much more. Need something unique for your special project? CALL US today. We'll work with you so you get exactly what you want!

Pricing and Pricing Examples

Pricing of items to be coated is difficult without knowing the condition and current finish of your part. Most coating processes are labor-intensive, involving cleaning, coating, high temperature curing, and polishing. Obviously, a part that is in good clean condition will require less work than an old pitted, rusty, painted piece.

As most pieces coming to us require some stripping, cleaning, and sandblasting for preparation, our APPROXIMATE pricing below reflects that. Items requiring less work will cost a little less; items requiring extensive reworking and extra time will cost a little more. In ANY event, you'll find our work excellent and VERY affordable, so we'll be happy to call you first with an exact price, once we've seen your part.

We invite you to call us first, describe your parts and coating needs. We can give you a really close estimate at that time.

So you want your "stuff" coated......

It's EASY - 1. Give us a call TODAY at 317-872-0001 to discuss your ideas for parts, coatings, color and texture choices. You'll find that we actually LIKE to talk to customers about their projects. We'll be HONEST with you, telling you what we can and can't do. We'll also be able to give you an accurate price quote at that time, and tell you what YOU can do to prepare the parts so that your cost will be even less.

2. Pack up your parts & Ship them to us. Use cardboard boxes and lots of crumpled newspaper (or foam "peanuts") to prevent damage to your parts during shipping. Ship to us any way you like...we recommend UPS Ground, FedEx Ground, etc. We use UPS Ground mostly for return shipping and try to stay away from the fairly slow US Postal Service.

8813 Robbins Rd
Indianapolis, IN 46268

3. Receive your coated parts back from us, all coated real nice & pretty! And we'll have carefully packed and shipped them to you so they'll look great on your project!
