I need your powder coat opinions, black denim or wrinkle?

I am doing most of the motor pieces ie tranny , cam and primary cover. What do you think would match the motor best. To me the black wrinkle would be good since my motor is done in it. Waddya think?

I like the wrinkle finish on motor parts better than smooth, seems to show dust a bit less

I would do them in gloss black to give some contrast other wise it all just blends together. Just my 2 cents.

After doing gloss on 70% of my bike, I want to do the engine and primary in wrinkle because the gloss gets very fine scratches in it and I think the wrinkle holds up better

I agree with this...the other finishes would blend in too much IMO...but it's your bike so do what you think will look best to you.

Wrinkle if you want to match the black part of the motor.

I agree, if you want to match it go with the wrinkle. Powderbuythepounds mini texture black is spot on for matching the wrinkle.

Which one is it from from there. The s&s black crinkle or the screaming eagle black wrinkle?
