I used Hammerite special metals primer and then plasticote satin black over the top and it turned out well

ive tryed all they other ways of painting it and this way was the only way that worked for me as the jet wash still peeled all the paint off with etching primer no matter what i did

I think I'll go this route, as mine gets high pressure washed after every outing. Also I've used plasticote a few times and its brilliant paint.

Cheers for all the input,

Mick

If you want a bombproof finish then anodising would be the way to go.

You can do it yourself - although after reading this link I think I probably wouldn't bother!

Great way of removing paint. Lots of business from car owners using pressure washers at zero inches from the paintwork suddenly finding that a stone chip has allowed the jet to rip a big chunk of lacquer off.

If its taking paint off its TOO CLOSE.

About a meter (yard for us oldies) on paintwork is close enough.
