I like shiny and buttoned up tight.
The kind of machine you keep clean and shiny.
A machine that turns heads ;-}

Interesting comments, considering that they are in the "Motorized Rat Rods" sub-forum.

I love Powder coating it's tough as nails. Only my opinion but if you get a powder coat that looks rustic I think it would be too "uniform" for a true rat rod look, Things just don't rust in a uniform way. It would be interesting to get a sample piece to see if one could transform or change the look by using sand paper or steel wool.

Again, I only came in this forum area to share a new powder coat that looks 'rustic' for those looking for the 'look' on something brand new is all.
Jezz, I'm sorry I shared, I didn't know in advance this forum was devoted exclusively to building EXCLUSIVELY on old rusted out bikes!

Rust and Rig on guys, sorry I invaded your redneck space.
Jezzz...

Was only food for thought on my part KC, never built a rat rod or attempted a rustic finish myself. So my 2 cents worth is probably only worth just that. Not meant to flame anyone.

Thanks for the heads-up. Like I said in an earlier post, it is an interesting finish if it's not too expensive.
Certainly no reason to get all huffy () and start insulting us. We get it; you don't like rat rods. We do. Sorry if that offends your sensibilities.

You guys are killin' me. You're killin' me!

Wouldn't it be fun if we all could sit down, face to face, and have these same discussions? I'll bet there would be some good laughs.

Yep, it would! But hey, I'm not mad or anything. The rofl thing is real. We all like what we like, and there's not accounting for taste; poor or otherwise!

We'd like to have you, Langolier. Any fan of Steven King is a friend of mine.

The June cruise will be a good one. And it's centrally located so lots of guys can make it. I wish every member here could come. What a hoot that would be.
