Default Best way to black things out??

I have waaaaaay to much on mmy bike !!!!

What i would love to do is a balance of flat black and black chrome...... I have used DUpli-Colors Shadow before (black chrome) so thats no problem, but not sure how to go with the flat black. I do have a blast cabinet loaded with walnut shells. Do i just blast the chrome off and start fresh ???

What can i do with the forks??? Powder coat??

Also, the grey engine kills me !!!! Is the black krinkle spray on any good ??? can it be done right with out removing the engine ???

Thanks for your help !!!

I made a trip to my local powder coater with all of the parts in hand. Let him do his thing. Very durable too.
When this years good riding weather turns ugly, I'll make another trip with the front ends parts.
