Words of warning,,,,, DO NOT spray Off bug spray close to your powder coated frame! It eats the freaking coating. I was working on the car tonight, and being in texas its hot and my shop lights were attracting a crap load of bugs. So I get out the bug spray, and some overspray gets on the frame. It immediatly looked like orange peel and does not clean off!
It's a serious plastic solvent - used it full strength for years in the Army Reserves. The newer formula blends it with a binder to reduce it's evaporation rate and make it last longer at lower concentrations.
There's probably a lot of other stuff in spray cans on the garage shelf than might attack the powder coat. The issue is spray cans themselves - for the price, you get 40% waste of the product in overspray (case in point.) Spraying anything does that - including paint - which is why it's more economical to powdercoat. No waste.
But, as a finish, it has it's limitations - it's just granulated polymer melted on.
Yes it was Off Deep woods. Here is a zoomed in pic, you can see the dots on the cross bar. Its like that over the entire rear trunk area, granted it will be covered and never seen but I still know it there.
