well..my dads friend opened up a powdercoating business and said i would get a big discount since i could bring him some business. so first, im getting my exhaust tip and brake calipers powdercoated black. not sure if i wanna get the honda stickers or not for the calipers though.

anyone have any more ideas of what to get powdercoated? i know rims but im waiting til i find some rims that i like for cheap.

so. one idea i had was..the hood. get it powdercoated black on my ASM. if it turns out to look like crap i know someone selling their asm hood that i could get, but i think id like it. i got some rock chips that are rusting so thats 1 reason i wanna do it.

what you guys think? any new ideas?

I was just kidding. But I meant THE license plate. ;)

You can powder coat the valve cover, right? Even though it's an EX, it's removable....
Hood and roof would be SICK powdercoated. Especially, as Cel said, black chrome.

why doesnt it sound like good idea?

hes got an oven big enough to fit a motorcycle in. im sure he got it big enough for our hood. i havnt seen the shop but i will in the next few days, and look at some of his work. my dad told me about about one color that sounds amazing. black base coat, with a color ontop of that (im thinking blue). he said that in certian light the top color can be seen. sounds sweet, but i think he has one that i can see when i go to his shop. ill take pics too.
