Yay or Nay?

Powder coated (both colors). The black was supposed to be gloss, but I had my powders mixed up and ended up as a textured.

Please excuse the dirty hands.

Re: Yay or Nay
Looks sweet! Do you think if you sprayed them with clear, they'd get glossy and maybe be easier to keep clean?

I see an orange filter of death in the background...

I dig the colors, as suggested a clear might be nice for sheen and ease of cleaning, lookin good though!

Re: Yay or Nay
They are caliper covers.

Good idea on the clear coat. I will do that.

As for the FRAM....I don't wanna start an argument, but My last Jeep used FRAM-185K miles and no issues. even an overheat never put that thing down.
My current turbo Golf has 182K miles and a Fram. I drive the living piss out of this car and it still runs great. All of my cars used Fram with no issues that could be linked to the oil filter. Regular maitenance is key. Fram keeps me in budget.

Re: Yay or Nay
How are you gonna powdercoat the front calipers? will the seals be ok in the oven?

Re: Yay or Nay
I only have polyurethane powders...I doubt they can withstand the heat of brakes.

My BBQ paint matches the rear covers, Maybe I will give that a shot.
