    Powder coating opinions welcomed

    I like a little bling but within reason if that makes any sense. Actually, I like to make things better then when I got them even more. When I first accepted my ski from the trip over to Japan I was in shock at how much surface corrosion my ski accumulated just from the trip. Since the motor is out of the ski I took the worst parts off and had them treated/powder coated. We'll see how long they hold up to the harsh conditions I'm in but for the look and price let's just say I'm pleased. Opinions good or bad welcomed. Click image for larger version.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Will ask the painter tomorrow what shade it is...the blue really looks darker than that in the pictures. It was the closest to what the outside blue looked like in powder coat colors that he had. I will be sure to pop a picture of them side by side on the outside then also post pictures of it assembled after I make it down to Yamaha.

    To have all 5 pieces done he charged just over $200 bucks. Not sure if that's average or what for powder coat, but I felt it was fare.

    My plans are to meet him after work tomorrow to pick up the chaff strip that goes under the valve cover...must have fell off during the painting process. Anyone know what the chaff strip is bonded down with?

    looks great, can't wait to see them installed. That's not a bad price, most places around here charge about $100 for a 4cyl valve cover, thats with machined letters and clear, but for everything you had done, not bad at all.
