    Ok so a little odd of a title but I needed something to catch everyones eyes....

    So im well underway to getting my UDS build completed. Been fighting with the weather, wife(considering I have a Bradley smoker mod project going as well), and sick kids for time. As of right now though Im getting to the point where im going to mark holes, drill and mount all piping I need for intakes.

    So here is my dilemma....I can do all the painting myself with the high heat 2000° primer and paint.

    Or I can spend about $75 on a local powder coating place that does a high heat ceramic enamel coating. The process they said is much like powder coating, spray it on and bake it finished.

    Whats everyone else doing and what kind of duration are they seeing out of it?
  2. I would have them do it if you want it to stay looking nice. I did mine myself and it looked great for awhile. Now rust comes through sratches and I have to touch it up. I guess it all depends on how ugly you want it and how much you want to spend.

    That's what I had done to the outside of mine. $75 to blast inside and out and then coat the exterior of the drum and lid.

    Cut-drill all of your holes before having it done.
