“I am interested in restoring an ’83 Harley Davidson. Some of the aluminum covers have been chromed and all covers have been in use for 15 years. Can these covers be stripped and powder coated successfully? If powder coated with a high gloss color should they also be covered with a clear? “


“Chrome plating can be stripped by an informed plater. Many powder coatings have high gloss characteristics that do not require a clear top coat. However, if you are looking for that deep depth of finish, like the old laquer jobs, a clear coat can offer that look, although with more orange peel.”
