Question on painting parts of the bike.

I want to completely black out my 08 r6.

So small parts like pegs, brake lever and all those little silver here and there... needs to be painted black.

Whats the best way of doing it? take it off and spray paint?

any advice is appreciated.

Regards

unless you're looking for a new hobby, I'd say PM scootertrash, I've heard nothing but great things about his PC work.

I think you're going to need special equipment to powder coat the parts yourself. So it would probably be more cost-effective to have ScooterTrash do it.

You're going to have to buy a powder coat machine and don't expect GREAT results on your first shot.

Scooter trash is cheap enough and his work is great.

i use sootertrash for all the powder that comes through my shop. he's XTREMELY cheap and very good. the eqipment to do the work is NOT cheap and takes a lot of space. spend several thousand? or spend 1-2 hundred? if you try to paint it will rub off or like these guys say, chip off.
