I may have to try that especially since it is engine block paint. It should provide a very durable finish

I hope to have some time this weekend to sand it and spray it.

For now I am just going to spray paint it. The paint I tested with is DupliColor Chevy Engine Block Orange. Picked it up at OReilly.


I'm considering powder coating but I may just repaint my Deception frame using Duplicolor or Rusto Wheel paint. The problem with the wheel paint is that they basically have three colors to choose from.

As long as your budget allows, always powdercoat!!! Far more durable than any paint, and with plenty of colors (my favorite shop here in Somerset, KY has about 25-30 choices minimum, and more at times) to choose from. Powdercoating can take a serious beating and still not chip, crack, or flake off and maintains its color and glossy finish over time very well. About $100 per frame though, or more.

I am using the Voodoo Zombie. Was going to buy it from DesertGuns but wanted it black. He already stripped his.

Looks good! You're going to have to clean up the brake bosses to get your brakes working smoothly, unless you plan to go with a rear disk brake adapter.

Going with disc. Just screwed those to protect the threads just in case I ever want to use them which is unlikely.

Well see how durable the paint is. May powder oat down the road.

I personally swear by powdercoating, as it's such a durable finish. Each full suspension frame does cost about $100-$120 to do though. Never have had a hardtail done, but it shouldn't be as much I wouldn't think.

How much do a few paint chips really matter anyhow....???
