That is true, it can eventually look like crap. That's the nice thing about powder coating being so cheap though, you can keep having it done if that's what you really want. Also, if you have any areas that are powdered on your quad that keep getting scratched in the same spots, look into clear racers tape. Keeps the powder coat perfect and once it gets all scratched up and beat up, you can just tear it off and put a new layer on. I know Motosport sells it (maybe even a site sponsor would have some for a discount).powder coat rubs off and scratche sand looks like crap after a while[/b]
