I contemplated powder coating, but ended up just using the same gloss black high heat engine enamel I used on the heads, manifold etc. It has good build, dries very hard, and seems pretty durable. Was also going to knock some of the gloss off with some compound, but I just left it so far. We’ll see how it holds up.
INterior and motor looks great? Nice work.
