Default powdercoat

Was wondering if anyone has ever had your motor powdercoated? I was thinking of getting my plus 12 painted black and was hoping to get some info from someone who's had it done before I start getting price quotes. Thanks.

..for the price of a shop to do it, you could probably order supplies from here http://www.eastwoodco.com/ ad do it yourself for almost as cheap and have the material and tools to do more motors later......... looky looky http://www.eastwoodco.com/jump.jsp?i...erID=68&KICKER

it will keep the heat in the engine dude, maybe not a good idea. if you want it coloured, maybe anodised black.

if you want a black crankcase, it may be cheaper and better to buy a jp crankcase.

Since the black crankcase is mostly a marketing thing, I'd get some REALLY dark shades. The'll make it look black

Every kind of layer on you crankcase is making resistance for heatdisposing and finally it will do nothing to your performance.
