Re: Help with Painting/powder coating
I've had my clutchplate and rear coil powdercoated. It looks great and is more durable than regular painting. The problem I ran into though is since I wanted red and red is used infrequently I had to pay the minimum charge. If you are going to a commonly used color they just add your piece to the job and it'll be cheap. I guess changing color runs is a bit of work, they have to clean the lines of the previous color etc. I went the powdercoat route because the anodized red doesn't match the red wheels. Since I had to pay the minimum charge ($100) I added two coil springs to the order for no extra $. Make sure you show them what needs to be taped off. I only had the face powdered but he also hit the bearing race so I had to dremel it clean before re-installing the bearing.
