Finally Getting paint on the FXRP Chassis

What did you use for paint? I got this suggestion from a restoration shop in NJ, but yours looks very stock too. There is a matching primer, and he uses a heat lamp to cure it.

Depends on how you want it to look - powder isn't paint

Here are some tank badges I thought might look good on my flat black tank. Then I saw the price. I don't think a CVO is in my cards if I can't even afford the badges. I bet I could have something similar fabricated or cast.
Or just leave it be.

They had a guy selling knock offs on Instagram or farcebook. Can't remember which but they were reasonable.
IIRC his were epoxy.

Wow, figured nobody used rattle can anymore, as cheap and durable powder coat is.
I personally Detest Powder Coat... Will Not use it... maybe on a Bumper or farm equipment... Maybe..

Anything that is "wired" will develop Ground loops and other electrical Gremlins... guaranteed... and it cost me plenty to have that **** removed from my Dragbike frame!!!!

Looks better than most rattle can jobs IMO. YMMV
And... you can see the difference from rattle can to HVLP to a high dollar Devilbiss ???
My Body man uses all...and I defy anyone to tell!!! Except PC,... which most can recognize..

Sorry but to my mind, Powder Coat is the new Buzzword.. like Billet used to be... Neither is Superior in any way... just different.. If ya like powder... use it... I coat my Cast Boolits with it... works pretty good!!!!
