This is for those painters out there and people with powdercoating experince but how much would or should it cost to powdercoat an engine??? Today i was talking and a guy said they have to take the engine apart and would cost about 5G's, but i really dont know how reliable he is as a source so figured i would open it up to the forum b/c i know there are some pretty smart guys are here with experience.

That is at least what I would charge. Take engine out, disassemble, remove all bearings etc., mask off, blast, powdercoat, reassemble with new bearings, gaskets, rings etc., reinstall motor. Just paint it.

No problem, I was going to black out my engine, but now think the silver looks better with a lite colored engine. I have read alot of posts on the VTXOA they most say it takes about 20 hrs of work, and most also say that they wouldn't do it again.
