Default Re: Paint or Powder Coat?

A powder coat is a beautiful finish that's hard & durable...

A spray finish w/hardener and a good gun is almost as fine...

Yet... I ride so much and so often that both the above seems a bit of a waste (unless you own the equipment or "know a guy") as no matter the coating I'm just gonna mess it up, scuffs scars & scrapes are part of the game unless you've a trailer/show queen that never gets ridden lol, my rides (one powder coated, one spray bombed) both could stand a repaint every season heh

So I rattlecan *shrug* still - if you've the cash/resources, defo powdercoat... but no matter what it's gonna get that "used" look if ya use it
