Using a factory powder coat for base color

Haven't messed with pc much so looking for advice. We have a set of dodge rims that have a nice silver powder coat on them, we are wanting to dip to them without changing the base color. Seems we need to scuff of course but can you dip to that or do we need to hit it with an inter-coat like sg-100?

    I think cured powder coat is too hard, they guys dipping to it are doing it while its still soft and not fully cured

    That's some of what I was concerned with getting the bite, either the film or the intercoat.

    I would use the sg-100 first. If you don't want to do that use the K2 Brew activator. It has a mean bite to it that will bite into the powder. You only get one shot with powder unless you have a powder shop.

    Decided to go with OHW color, got the bite we were looking for with a light scuff, couple of redos as far as the carbon fiber looking proper. Going in again tonight. They are for display at the rim/tire shops so taking our time on them.
