I have vivid black 14 SG and looking to coat the fuel console and crash bar. What is your guys thought on powder coating those items vs leaving the chrome? Will the chrome hold up better vs the powder coating?
I have a guy about 2 hours away that will sandblast the parts, cook it, then spray and cook again as he walked me through the process. I got the horn cover from him and it was perfect. I know black shows all but want to make sure with those items they will hold up good. I have to make my mind up as I am taking the parts to him in 2 weeks
My last bike was chromed till the hill rims, engine, foot pegs, handlebars, you name it and I hated cleaning it lol. I am a funny guy cause I don't like my bike dirty at all when I ride. Black helps with the polishing but still needs cleaned.
I just want to make sure I am making a good decision. I know chrome last a long time and does good job hiding scratches. I just want to ensure the crash bar and fuel console holds up good and will not look like crap in a year.
Has the console held up good outside of the seat rubbing? A guy wants $300 for the console, engine crash bar, fender covers, and headlight trim. I am trading parts so it will cost me $100. If you can send me some pictures of your pic a few more that would be great.
