Frame painted. Finally.

I don’t know what went on with my powder coat shop (Hy Tech) but finally, months after I dropped it off, they finished it.
We tried finding a few different powder coatings but nothing matched the Porsche silver we are trying to match to. We did find something else and it is really close to the color we are trying to match.
It is a High Temperature liquid coat that gets sprayed on similar to spraying on powder except it isn’t electronically charged like powder is. It can be applied to other surfaces then metal.
It is a catalyzed Polyurethane that is baked on in an oven. Though not as hot as powder baking… and not as low as baking car paint.
It is a custom silver color that is made for Stop Tech brake calipers. It is resistant to Brake fluid (which eats away any sort of paint). So if this is resistant to brake fluid, you know it is durable stuff.
It doesn’t go on as thick as powder.
And i believe there is a clear coat over top of it…
