    If you can find Ivanko's source, you could probably buy the exact same paint.

    I'll try to dig up the current list and then I'll add you.

    Did you sue Ivanko...................again? ;) :p :D

    Mine were in better shape. Did yours have to travel all the way from the US to NZ? You're closer to the Asian market than the US market. Do...

    Powder coating might be worth it for "rare vintage htf" York plates but it's pretty expensive. I checked a few local places, including Dynamic Fitness. A few forum members have powder coated...

    From what I can tell, everyone who repaints their plates thinks their way is the best. ;) :p :D

    The presoak seems sort of a waste to me if you're going to wire brush them.

    There's no insert on those plates. It's a cast iron core coated in urethane.

    Neato. Ivan(ko) might like to see those. He seems to be interested in the history of grip plates.

    There are few plates made more poorly than those ones. They were common in sporting goods stores a few years back... some may still sell them or something similar.

    I suspect some of the odd combinations are salvaged mismatched parts from factory errors, customer returns, or other damaged bars. Depending on what you want, it could be interesting. But if I just...

    I'd love to see how they do in this test but I'd have a hard time pulling the trigger on them when you can get compression collars for a few dollars more.[/quote]
