I've been thinking about having my Wing's cylinder covers powder coated a gloss black to emphasize the chrome center piece. If it's not feasible please let me know.

My questions are these:
1. Have you had it done?
2. How much?
3. Any problems or pitfalls to avoid?
4. Do I need to replace the gasket when I take the covers off?
5. Would you post a picture of the results?

look up jet-hot coating on yahoo or google, it's the same as powder coating, but can withstand higher tempatures without discoloration.
gmk1800: Are you recommending jet-hot coating instead to powder coating the covers due to heat?

Still need to hear from somebody who's had the engine cylinger covers done. I'd be real nervious to be the first...
