Paint Suggestions

Im getting ready to do some more work on the car for the Summer.

I want to take the Current Plenum and Runners off and paint them.

Any suggestions? Paint type .. Brands .. Prep ?

I thought about powder coating them but can I do that at home?

Right now they have black spray paint on them that has flaked off really bad.

Re: Paint Suggestions

a good scuff with red scotch brite is best for prep. paint brand or type wont matter. most important thing is to use the proper primer for the surface being painted. Eastwood does sell a do it yourself powdercoat but i have never used it.
