    Default Ride plate

    I am powdercoating my droop and diverter this weekend. I am considering coating the ride plate also. Would it be beneficial to coat the ride plate with a texture?? Or, would it not make any difference??

    My thought was the rough finish would break up the water tension. If cavitation wore it off would act as an indicator. Thinking outside the envelope a little.

    The coating I was considering was the wrinkle powder.

    nothing wrong with powdercoating your ride plate. The plate should not crack unless you've got some pretty severe alignment issues with the shoe or cradle.

    mines hard anodized by Embee Performance and it's held up really well. there's a small area on the bottom that's burned off but that's to be expected with any coating and everywhere else it looks good.
