    Hi folks, I know online commentary is full of advice about this but any local thoughts on the Powdercoat / 2-Pack debate? I’m rebuilding a Suzuki T500J (the green /white version of the 72 T500) and have been thinking about 2-Packing the frame (minus clear) after reading about Powdercoat corrosion potential around some metal-to-metal areas (e.g. centre stand, possibly swinging-arm) and welds. Also 2-Pack might get me closer to the original version of black? Any Kommune views / experience I can learn from?

    You’d be surprised how good and durable a finish you can get from a vht rollcage or epoxy rattle can.

    Thanks Matt, I’ll give it a try on some smaller bits to see how it turns out.
