I'd like to hear anyones thoughts on paint or powdercoat. I'v always powdercoated but i'v seen great results with paint.

I like powder coating on small parts you can take off and fix easily,but big parts like frames scare me if the powder coat gets scratched youre basically screwed B)

Are you going to cap off the swingarm pivot gussets and put a sleeve in there to keep the moisture from getting trapped in there? B)

Rich, when wireman said he was going to bed to lay some pipe he was talking about his wife, not his exhaust.
Some things you have a clue about but some things you still have much to learn about. WTF?! B)
