This could be engine covers, fork lowers or wheel hubs.  I saw some pics of some fork lowers on the SOHC4 site that look as close to original as I've ever seen.  He sanded them with wet or dry sandpaper starting with 400 and finished with 1200 (I assume wet).  No polishing wheel.  They had a very correct looking brushed finish.  Then he had them clear powder coated.  Anyone done this?  Any concerns: sticking, cracking, yellowing, especially on the engine covers?  If I tried it and it didn't look good how hard is it to remove?

I have never done it but I can tell you PC is an SOB to remove! Do you have a link? I would like to see the result as I have only completed one engine cover so far. Working on the Rocker Cover and I'm hating it! lol Smiley

I agree, there is nothing worse.  That's why I want to do what's best first and only one time.

Any Porsche wheel I had refinished I always had them clear coated. They always looked perfect and easy to clean!
