PSC has a FaceBook page! And it needs fans

I Need Your FaceBook Vote for a $250K Small Business Grant

I Need Your Vote for a

$250K Small Business Grant

Thanks to a program sponsored by Chase and LivingSocial called Mission: Small Business℠, your support could translate into a $250,000 grant for Phoenix Specialty Coatings! 

I need at least 250 votes at Go to their site, find Phoenix Specialty Coatings' application and give me your thumb!  At least 250 votes are required to even be considered for a nomination. Of those applications receiving the minimum required votes, up to 12 $250,000 grants will be awarded to provide small businesses with capital and marketing resources needed to make a positive impact on their business.

There's 33 days left to vote and as of this writing -- 5 days after my application was filed -- I'm exactly halfway with 125. Please don't blow this off.

The application is blunt and to-the-point and each section has a 500 word limit. Among other factors, interaction with the business' community is a vital component to securing a nomination. 

Since PSC is out in the sticks as most of you know, and since most of my business comes from members, I featured "FABO" as my community. I have included my entire application below for you to check over. I want your support but I also want you to know exactly what it is you're going to be supporting here.

This is a link to the formal press release if you wish to learn more about the grant program:

The only drawback is that voters must be FaceBook users. It's fast and free to register just like RacingJunk so if you don't have an account, please open one even if just for this special occasion. I've always tried to be here for you ... I'd appreciate it very much if ya'll could be here for me on this one. 

Thanks in advance for your support!  My friends and customers here on RJ have all been a part of PSC's past success ... and I'm honored to take you along into its future as well.

Tell us about your business; how successful is it and why is it unique?

Phoenix Specialty Coatings opened on May 31, 2007 following our relocation to Tennessee after Hurricane Katrina. Now as a custom one-off / Mopar specialist and one of very few female powder coaters in the country, I mainly work for hot rodders and Harley guys (though any metal can cross my bench at times). Customers ship parts from one end of the U.S. to the other including Alaska and Hawaii, with a few from Canada and overseas as well.

PSC is one of the few powder coating shops to complete a single piece of metal in multiple colors -- two, three and four-color jobs are not unusual. The distinctive results and notoriety as a rare Mopar specialist have brought very selective and diverse customers to my doorstep, and no two jobs are alike. I am presently working on my first job for a retired NASCAR driver and recently finished one for a published author with a title-winning dragster despite the fact I have not formally advertised. I work strictly via word of mouth and have a website with decent page rankings.

The vast majority of my work comes from an automotive message board comprised of people with cars like mine, an old Barracuda street rod. I've had 15 or more jobs here at any given time for over 3 years mainly because of the 24,000+ members, and can now thank several hundred as past customers. The turn-around time could definitely improve with some extra help but it's just not in the budget at the moment.

As if one natural disaster in a lifetime wasn't enough, on April 20, 2011 an F2 tornado dropped a 75-foot oak tree on the south wall of the shop, putting us out of business for over five months as the repairs were underway. A number of upgrades were also put into place at that time including terrific new insulation, structures on the north / south side for additional storage and a ceiling-mounted spray rack for my coating work. Other plans are still just that ... for the time being. But I'm confident that continued hard work and dedication will ensure its success and expansion well into the future.

How is your business involved with the community you serve? 

I live in a very small farming community and have few agricultural interests. As a result, my business is internet based with few local customers.

I have been a member of my online community,, for over 7 years and am one of its original members. I joined as an enthusiast (I've owned my old hot rod since 1991), but became a formal site Vendor after launching PSC in 2007. I enjoy answering the members' questions about the powder coating industry and my processes, and sharing tips to get the most for their money and the best results on their cars. Although I would never claim so personally (because in my opinion that's the day you quit learning anything new!), I am regarded as the site's resident powder coating expert and questions are routinely and openly referred to me, CudaChick1968. PSC has also been called "FABO's powder coating shop" more often than not, and no other coating shop is a registered site Vendor.

I spearheaded a contest idea on FABO in late 2009 to support the automotive hobby's future, "Young Guns -- Sign In and Win!" [] asking FABO members ages 25 and under to share their story and photos about how they got involved in the hobby. I offered up a $100 PSC Gift Certificate to a randomly-drawn winner. Much to my surprise, 26 other members offered up prizes ranging from motors and transmissions to handmade craftsmanship and the contest took on a life of its own, lasting nine months and awarding 9 young car owners three great prizes each! The goodwill and comraderie generated as a result has spawned two other FABO Young Guns benefit contests since then, all designed to help the youngsters get their cars going and fulfill their dreams.

In 2009, I started the FABO Members' Map. It has evolved into an extremely viable resource to assist the membership in finding each other, arranging get-togethers, locating mechanical assistance and making local parts deals a reality for an otherwise internet-based message board. Since its inception, several regional and international A Body Clubs have organized.

FABO is mainly my home away from home ... and without those guys I wouldn't be here. I'll never stop contributing in any way I can to a great motorhead website.

What would a $250k grant mean to your business plan and how will you utilize the funds to ensure long-term growth and stability? 

Rather than continue to be relegated to my quarter of a 30x40 building (which is mainly my partner's engine building / restoration shop), PSC would expand into larger quarters on our 5 1/2 acre property to the east of its present location, closer to Highway 45E for more parking and greater public exposure. Its highly upgraded blasting facility -- ahhhh, an 8-foot blast cabinet finally! -- would then be separately housed (since media dust can be a problem), along with a small office / computer area to free up space in the house.

Additional quality personnel would be sought not only to help me out with the currently slow turn around time, but to learn and carry on my distinctive mutli-color work which has been a main facet of my business. I'm not getting any younger and my daughter has other interests. I would love to pass my knowledge and experience on preferably to a qualified female apprentice, since girls are rare in this business and the reputation of the shop has mainly been built on female expertise.

Any remaining funds not immediately earmarked for upgraded equipment purchases, relocation / construction and operating expenses would be invested per a professional financial advisor's recommendations.

What types of challenges can you identify with your plan and how will you overcome them? 

With the added responsibility of personnel / payroll and a larger facility, finding a qualified shop manager would be paramount ... or else I would have to give up the work I so love to do myself and concentrate solely on running the business and keeping it focused on growth and future development. 

Before hanging my shingle and starting powder coating full time, I worked for lawyers for 20 years as a paralegal / legal secretary. Since then, I've taught myself everything about running my own business successfully so far -- with thankfully lots of "ups" and very few "downs" -- and have no intentions of changing that approach in the future. As obstacles arise, they are addressed and overcome just as successes are broadcast and celebrated. 

I cannot claim to know all there is to know about making PSC an overwhelming success well into the future. For those times when professional advice is required to that end, it will be enlisted and fully utilized.

Describe the talent on your team and how they make your business successful.

Leanna Johnson, The CudaChick ~ Known to my customers and members as the "Mistress of Metal," I am PSC's owner / operator handling prep and restoration work, powder coating and finishing, customer service, website creation and maintenance, billing, promotion, and everything else that needs to be done.

From the PSC Feedback page, a few of the adjectives used to describe the results are awesome, fantastic, perfect, outstanding and impeccable. We must be doing something right! 

Additional relevant information you would like to share 

Until I heard about the Mission: Small Business program on FaceBook, I have never before considered applying for any kind of outside assistance with my business even from the federal government. The distinctive approach and willingness to help those like me is what most impressed me about the program and why I am sitting here taking time away from my shop in typing this right now. Knowing that real people are on the other end of this exchange who are considering my contribution is invaluable in this day and age of impersonal computer-generated communications, especially in the business world. Thank you for standing apart from the rest -- it's one of those things I try to do every day and I admire it when I see it in others.

Get Your Limited Edition CudaChick / PSC Garage Poster NOW!


Phoenix Specialty Coatings Limited Edition Garage Poster




I've decided to pull the trigger and take pre-orders via paypal! $16.50 each, includes USPS shipping to the continental U.S. (International orders, please request a paypal invoice from [email protected], including your postal code and number of posters, so I can get a shipping quote.)

PLEASE keep in mind I've never done this before so there may be a few hiccups. I'll get them out as quickly as possible, but kindly allow up to 6 weeks for delivery before you get worried.

This link brings up a paypal Buy It Now window; I'm a total rookie at this e-commerce stuff so I didn't try anything fancy like attaching a photo of the poster. 

The watermark will NOT appear on the printed posters.

If the paypal link does not work, please log on to your paypal account, "Send Money" to [email protected], noting "Poster" in the subject line. If your paypal info does not include your mailing address, please add it to the message somewhere.

Please also indicate in the Special Instructions area whether you want it signed, and if it's something special just tell me what you want it to say.

Of course, if you are dissatisfied in ANY WAY, you will receive a full refund if you return the poster to me in its tube.

Aside from the Buy It Now pre-order reservation, a PSC Garage Poster will be included with your finished parts if your labor invoice totals $300.00 or more after all discounts are applied. A $200 labor invoice entitles you to a 50% discount on a PSC Garage Poster.

Thanks to everyone for the fantastic reception of the poster's debut!  Of course, feel free to message me if you have any questions or need additional details.  Thanks for looking!!!

My Cuda is a Movie Star Now!!!

The first leg of Katie P's amazing road trip in her '78 Nova to meet ladies who've built their own hot rods is finished and the "teaser" video has now been released!


I'm proud and honored to announce that my humble powder coating shop, Phoenix Specialty Coatings, and my Cuda Slimer and I were part of the adventure!  Check out the video ... I fire up the Cuda and scare the hell out of Katie (heh hehhhh), we have a couple cool shots together and there's a quick panning of my shop in the first 40 seconds. on her website or on YouTube

If this is a taste of what can be expected from the final production of the documentary, it should be awesome!

The ALL website is UP!

The ALL NEW website debuted February 12, 2011! 

The old site served me well for a few years. After the Feedback page disaster last October that some of you are already aware of which caused the loss of 3 1/2 YEARS of customers' comments (not to mention that weird Gallery layout), it was well past time for a big face lift. My shop has been growing so it was time my internet presence started keeping up with the pace.

There are lots of changes and new features throughout including tons of photos, a new Work Samples Gallery, dozens of comments, before and after pictures ... there's even a Customer Swag Survey so you can tell me what kind of freebies / PSC merchandise you want to enjoy along with your finished parts. Most past customers will see at least something that's highly familiar if you look in the right spot.

Please take a few moments and browse through it. I'm anxious to hear what you think! I've already worked out a couple little bugs but I'm sure there are more. Comments and suggestions for improvement are always welcome and appreciated. All previous suggestions received about my old website over the years have been incorporated into the new one (within my limited ability), and it can only get better with your added input. I'm here to serve you.

Thank you for your business!

New Summer Promotion Starts NOW -- reserve your spot

As I'm sure you can understand, the "slow" time around here is during the summer when most everybody is out enjoying their rides rather than working on them. I've got an idea to run by you that should equalize my summertime slow-down with an attractive offer.

Now this new experimental promotion is tailored to those who know in their hearts that there's no wayyyyy their car is going to be ready to enjoy over the summer. What I have in mind is a reservation program of sorts ... and if you make a reservation you'll be entitled to a terrific discount above and beyond the normal 10% member discount. Let me explain a little better.

I'm willing to offer ya'll a bigger discount just for the peace of mind I'll have in knowing there's some guaranteed work coming in over the summer.

Say John has been working on his Dart for 6 years and he knows it'll be another couple of years before it sees the pavement. John has a pair of old Mopar Performance valve covers slated for the Dart but they need some work. Under this new promotion idea, John will make a reservation to send in those valve covers on a certain date -- let's say during the first week of June.

In exchange for John's promise to send in the parts during the first week of June, when he does so I will provide a 15% labor discount rather than the usual 10% RJ discount. The reservation allows me to prepare my schedule -- especially on custom jobs -- and count on the incoming work, and allows John time to save up the money, get the parts ready to ship, do some prep work to save a few bucks ..... you get the idea. 

What I'd like to see on my calendar is that Mark's rear end housing for his road course Demon is scheduled to arrive the second week of June. Rob's Camaro bumpers and intake will be here the third week of August. Max's GMC dash, pulleys and brackets will be here July 18. Etc., etc., etc.  And I'm willing to cut you a good discount so I can do that.

I'm open to suggestions to make this attractive for everyone! Feel free to give me a call to discuss details or add yourself to my summertime dance card. Oh, one more thing: If you make a reservation and DON'T send your parts in as scheduled, I won't send the PSC Enforcer out to get you or anything ... but you'll lose your 15% discount on your reservation.

March '09 Powder Coating Special -- 10% Off on Brake & Suspension Parts

To help get your ride ready for its Spring debut, through the end of March 2009, racingjunk members can enjoy a 10% labor discount on all suspension and brake parts including upper and lower control arms, spindles, drums, rotors, backing plates, calipers, etc.

I have dozens of colors in stock to choose from and can order thousands more at a reasonable price to suit your custom application; a special order color generally adds only about $40 to a job total. Free color swatches are always available for the asking!

See my profile gallery for a few work samples, check out the Before & After Slide Shows in my videos, read other members' feedback or view the entire website Gallery at for hundreds of work sample photos.

Be sure to mention you're a racingjunk member when you call or write for a free quote to take advantage of this month's special. Referrals and new customers are always welcome and are very much appreciated.

An extra special thank you goes out this month to for recently adding personal blog posts (it's a big help for a small business in today's economy and is sincerely appreciated) as well as to RJ member purpledragon.  I hope the work exceeds your expectations Ken!

Thank you all in advance for helping to make March a record-setting month here at PSC! I appreciate and value your friendship and business.
