PowderCoated my IC piping

I wanted to dress up my engine a little bit, so I decided to paint my IC pipes.

Round 1: I went the rattle can method. I cleaned, sanded, primed, and painted them. They looked great, but the finish quickly started cracking and peeling, I guess from the heat.

Round 2: I took them off and got the pc'ed. They have held up longer than the krylon did Costed $100 to get the old paint bead blasted off and coated.

The only issue I encountered with the pc is that it's SUPER smooth. I kept blowing boots off. I finally had to rough up the finish on the ends and spray hairspray to keep them on.

Those look good, I am thinking of doing this also but I never thought about the boots blowing off from the powder coat.

I guess you could, but once you sand the ends down you won't have an issue.
