Big Blue Pearl Blacked out?

I'm looking for forum members who have blacked out the BBP? Just pulled the trigger on powder coat for most of my chrome parts and D&D fat cat black
Any pics would be great as I am having second thoughts l. Although it's already too late!

Sorry can't help.

I'm sticking to chrome with my BBP. Maybe depends on whether your using a gloss black or flat color. Gloss black with BBP should work but not a flat color.

Exhaust was flat but all other pieces are gloss black
My wheels are contrast also
So I'm going with a few contrast parts
Air cleaner floor boards and controls etc

I have had a few parts coated a satin black. And am very happy with the results. I like some chrome in places mixed with some black. Done right I have seen BBP blacked out and looked very good.

2012 Road Glide Ultra, BBP. Jackpot head pipe, V&H Monster ovals, VIED's DIY rear air ride suspension, Progressive Mono Tubes in the front -1.

I have blacked most of mine out......Leaving the fork lowers & mufflers Chrome. For now- leaving the Pushrod covers & tappets Chrome. Will be powdering the Rocker tops & bases in a few weeks.

I have my own powder biz, so I have used High GLoss-Satin-Flat aqnd Wrinkle in certain areas to be able to show Contrast as well as all variations of Black that I offer.

I started out with mainly High Gloss, BUT I an slowly having High Gloss for only smaller accent items....... For my eye, the Shine & Flake of the BBP stands out better against the Satin or Flat while still haveing a nice contrast.

Here are just 2 pics as examples.....

If it was de-catted, probably so.......I have bought & sold so much here it's hard to keep straight.........

If you need any powder done, I have quite a large supply of parts for an exchange program........Good luck on the transformation!!
