Paint, more durable than powder coating?? You sure??.....
I always thought it was the other way around. That's why people always looked to powder coating as something extra. I've also heard complaints on how much harder it is to strip a powdercoated frame compared to a conventionally painted one. does primer also really provide an extra sealing effect to the paintjob as you seem to suggest?
