    I used black diamond metallic from Eastwood. Make sure that you have all oil removed from the surface. I masked off the ribs with high temp tape.

      Thanks Tanner, looks good. So you did the powder coating yourself then? I'm not sure my wife would appreciate me putting car parts in her oven?

        When I started the project, I bought a really nice used oven for $50 and a Harbor Freight gun. I made some rookie mistakes, but finally figured it out and have powder coated about any non-plated or stainless steel part that would fit in the oven.

          As an experiment, I powder coated the chrome trim strip under the doors, the trim caps on the rear fenders and the cap on top of the windshield a semi gloss black. They were all beat up and I have new replacements but I thought it would fun to see what it looked liked. It’s subtle and it has grown on me.

            I've had several items PC'd at a few places in Rancho Cordova, but not used the black chrome color.

              Would that be Pacific Powder Coating Cam?

                I've used Perfect It, Champion and Pacific. All did good work.

                    Had my stock cover, airbox and dipstick all powder coated.

                      Found a powder coater near my office and took the cover in a week ago. He called me yesterday to come take a look, even though he said it didn't come out they way he wanted, he just wanted me to see the color. Problem was one side of the cover had a lot of fisheyes. But the color/shade was matching the swatch. So I went by and assured him I was happy with the color and he assured me he is a perfectionist. I like that. The price agreed upon took into account, more than one attempt.
                      When I get the final product, I will, of course post the pictures.
                      The main reason I'm doing this, is to make it easier to keep the cover looking nice, the bare alloy cover was constantly needing polishing, and I thought this thread might be interesting to everyone. Seems some past, active posters, have thought 6-Pack had gone to seed.

                        That polishing was the reason I replaced the bright aluminum shroud with the black powder coated version.

                        I still have a chrome plated valve cover, though.

                          Looking forward to seeing the pictures Bruce. I get tired of polishing the Alloy one on my 73. For my TR250 project, I bought an alloy one but it’s black.

                          Cheers

                            Got the cover back from the powder coaters just before Thanksgiving. Not real black chrome, but I like it.
                            I posted some pics over on the TRX site, in the TR6 Tech, photos and videos forum.
