Been trying to reach them, but have not had any luck. Been a little hard while working 12 hour days.

Ps~ Forgot to mention that like Tim, I am not on Facebook either. I quit it in 2014 and have no desire to go back.
There's also the website/email, but it doesn't have the beautiful pictures that the FB pages offer.

I like the Ukraine colour scheme.

Porcelain Enamel is a wonderful product.
I found a very friendly U.K. enamelling company who did a couple of free trial drums for me.
The flag transfer is baked on during a second lower temp run. The customisation possibilities are endless with the transfers.

Couple of minor flaws in the tests which they said they could fix in future runs.

Unfortunately the company went out of business. :cry:

I sold the white one and the mat black one is now my UDS.

Jeff does some amazing work not only on kettles,
but also on Coleman lanterns and old collector
stoves. He has a cult following in those circles
as well. I am fortunate enough to work about
5 miles from his shop. It's great to be able to drop
in and see some of the current projects, but not
so great on my wallet. LOLOL!!
To the best of my knowledge, IPE is the only place
on the face of the earth that offers porcelain
restoration for these types of projects.

Yeah, I talked to a porcelain company in Indianapolis. When I told them grills, they said, "No way."

I’ve got a new black lid and bowl for my performer, I’m going to reach out and see how much for the glen blue treatment. Would look pretty amazing with the GB 26”.
Chris did you pull the vent covers? What’s that look like as a project?

Does IPE just coat over the existing black porcelain enamel with another coat?
Hi, simple answer is yes but im pretty sure its not that straight forward as others would be doing. Id suggest reaching out to Jeff at IPE who can detail the process and he's a great guy too!!

Surprised how expensive it is is it's around $400.
I guess most of the cost for these custom kettles is the labour cost for disassembly, assembly, packaging, post, etc.

I was quoted just £24 ($29) each to coat 45 Gallon drums. Maybe that's why the enamelling company I dealt with went out of business!
Their core business was enamel bakeware. The track was continually running at near capacity. Very cheap to produce. I came away with a pile of free baking trays.

Materials are very cheap. Running the furnace will be expensive, especially with todays energy prices but that's why they need the high volume goods to keep it fired up.
