      Due to ordering error on parents part, Grandpa tried to take some boy out of this bike frame and install a bit of little girl, so, I used Corkey Pink clear coat over factory powdercoat and decals. Also a coat of clear vision for depth

      I thought about powder coating the skid plate on my Bull Bar. It got me to thinking of doing it in a gloss black to match the grille. There is a local powder coater that said the glossy finish doesn't hold up as well and scratches easy. True?

      Well, of course a glossy finish will show defects before a flat finish will.:D Gloss black has to be the most revealing finish there is.

      I recommend "S&S Black Wrinkle", as it is a glossy texture and about the most durable finish you can get.

      No problem. It's a new version of silver vein for me , I wanted to try some. Now I know what it will look like on the intended thing.

      Awesome work.:thumbsup: I can't seem to find a decent powdercoater, not that their finish is bad, just seems like they don't put any effort into prep. If you see a big U-Haul rolling around your neighborhood it's me looking for your driveway. I got a garage full of stuff I'd like for you to get your hands on.
