Re: To Paint or Powdercoat?
Just a word on powder coat places. Look for one that specializes in custom automotive and motorcycle work. A lot of them just do commercial stuff, like lawn furniture, fencing and things that do not require a good finish. The custom guys know what customers like hot rodders and bikers want. The big commercial/industrial ones don't really give a darn and will not devote the time it takes for a good looking job. This from experience.
