IMHO powdercoating in color has run its course, you will get tired of it sooner or later, but that's just me. I would do the DCB pewter color but that's about it. Polished S.S. is hard to beat. Good luck

    I have parts from Lightning, Hardin, Rex, Dana, IMCO, Eddie and some custom fabbed ones on my boat. Dana is the only one that offers my color. Dana's powdercoating prices were a little steep so I bought what I needed in either raw (unfinished) or polished and just took it all to a Powder Coating when I was re-rigging my boat. Embee performance does great work and has something like over 500 colors.


    I understand its a little fusturating buy hey, its a custom boat right? Anything custom is going to be a pain in the ass! just deal with it, the reward it always worth it when its done.

    Any idea what would cause one color to have problems and one not to?

    So I was out on the boat today and I think I have decided to keep everything in the cockpit polished. I am afraid that the orange maybe too over the top and make things look a little trashy.... plus it saves me some money as I won't be needing gauge bezels.

    So what's the story with polished - do I have to keep it polished? With the polished tilt helm and the chrome/platnuim Autometer gauges, a few more polished bits with compliment the interior of the boat.

    How about the clear anodized - will it experience the same issues as the red anodized that I had on my other boat where the colored layer started flaking off - underneath looked like some galvanic corrosion although gell was under it and gauges where on top of it.
