Opinions on engine covers.

I'm looking to "paint" my engine covers i.e. clutch cover, sprocket cover, cam gear cover and so on. My question is, is it worth spending the money to powder coat them or would a few coats of some thick temp worthy paint suffice? Thanks in advanced.

Andrew

Hi temp paint will work. Got to clean them real good and make sure the surface is rough so it will stick.
Paint is ALL in the prep. Don't prep it right, paint won't be right.

Also paint hides nothing. If the is an imperfection you can see before paint, you will see it after paint.

Powdercoat is better than paint. Not a bad choice.

Just depends if you want it to look like a BBQ pit or not, lol

I'm leaning more towards the powdercoat for durability reasons.

Chris hit me up tomorrow and let me know what's up. Does Blake still do it?
