    Painting your intake grate, pump shoe, ride plate, pump housing?

    My parts are all rather corroded from sitting on a floating dock before I owned it. I'm really temped to paint all these parts.

    I figure a nice rattle can job couldn't hurt, any of you guys doing this?

    Polish it with an angle die grinder and a light scotch bright wheel. Looks almost like stainless when you are done.

    Takes no more than a few minutes to do.

    I'm thinking I might powdercoat the stuff over the winter. I really hate that "W" word.
    Anything under my ski looks like complete crap and for some reason it bothers me.

    Salty, I've wire wheeled everything to get the algae and dull, dull grey grime but it still has dark pits all over all the parts.
