Thats true Husabutt. I thought about sanding down and painting mine another color. Black or Blue.
If getting into bare areas while sanding from a chipped up cover then primer would be needed before paint. And depending on the quality of appearance desired. If there are any ridges of topcoat where it meets the magnesium the primer applied could be sanded for perfection before paint. Sometimes you dont see it at first but when sanding into bare areas later it can be seen as a ring around it.

Never knew there was such a thing. Learn something every day (and forget something too).

Now your getting picky. I suppose a Husaberg deserves the best

Sure, why not. Our Husabergs. And they are small parts anyway..
As for the Benko B17. Well honestly I just googled that today because I never have tried to chemically strip powder coat.

Best idea is to use copious amount of beer. It's gonna look great. That evening.... Every job is better with beer.👍
