@87BJ74 where did you just have your engine parts done?I can't remember who the sponsor was that did the powder coating. But Midwest does powerder coating. They are cheaper but also not as high quality.
Powder coating of MT is the best that i know of around here. They coated a frame for my dad and it turned out very good and the process they used was much better than anything my dad ever got from midwest. Of course you have to pay for the quality, but if it is something that needs a really good strong coat, I would go with powdercoatingofMT.
