I have a hard tail frame that was fabricated for me to go with my old panhead motors. Called around and nobody seems to do powder coatings near my area and I'm not willing to gamble the frame to post, so good ol' wet paint it's going to be. A very old machine shop that does just about everything wants to know how I want it to be done and they use industrial epoxy or urethane paints, as they do industrial coatings. The frame is on bare steel so only the storage grease has to be washed off before painting. The color will be Ford black. Does it really matter what type of coating I use? We use epoxy coatings at work all the time but they are marine coatings. There's also a kind of language barrier as some case urethane and epoxy are meant the same thing. I don't want to do the frame again if I screw up this stage and I'm not planning on selling it either. The bike will be ridden so I would like the paint to be durable also. The sheet metal parts are not that important as the frame is a PITA to do again and it's not like I'm going to get another one. On a note the parts going to the bike will all be old, self made or refurbished save for bearings and such.
