for the people here that powdercoated there wheels did you resuse your wheel bearings or did you buy new ones?

Ive got the same color scheme and was thinking of the blue or silver to match the paint.... I would theorize that new bearing would be used, but i am talking out of my ass on that one. Just dosent seem worth wheel issues to reuse stock after tear down then to just buy new ones. Gold would be trickier to pull off, maybe with gold rearsets, a set of asv or pazzo levers, p/c calipers or gas cap.... Just need other accents i think to really pull it off. that is why i personally am going to stick with blue or silver.

Bearings can stay in and be reused as long as they are protected during prep and coating. Personally I would go black rearsets, black midpipe, black subframe, leave the back rim black and do the front rim in silver. Give you a different look that flows with the black/silver and blue. T

I think it might be even better the other way around, or blue front and black rear maybe ?

Careful with gold, I had to double check to get a color I liked. The bright golds dont seem to hold up the best for brightness. I settled on a happy medium.
