    :hello: Rick: My ZL 10 carbs that you done for me the 2 rails that hold the carb banks together are showing signs of rust which is no biggie. Some time down the road I was going to get them powder coated silver. Would gas/fuel have any affect on the powder coating.

    :hello: OK: Thank's Rick. It won't be any time soon. :laughing7:. I will get the rails on the following carbs done because they are still in my closet. :laughing7:. 85 CB 650 SC, 87 GPZ 1000 & 88 EL 250 B. I'm having them powder coated in BMW silver. PowderKoat Plus had 7 shades of silver to chose from & the BMW is closest to my liking. How much would you want to do a one cyn sport quad carb. I have all the OEM parts & SS cap screws.

    :hello: Thank's: Rick. Powderkote plus does very good work. All their powder coat is rated to 800* F. I've never had to have them redo any parts. They have been in business for 26 years at the same location.
