So what color is your chassis?
Is it powdered or painted?
Rattle can or base coat/clear coat or what?
Add your pics please
I'm looking for ideas and have no real favorite yet

Black Powder coat from FFR. Mine came with no weld splatter and I get many thumbs up for looks.

Black powdercoat from FFR. Mine was apparently one of the early in-house jobs, after they stopped outsourcing the powdercoat. There was a LOT of weld splatter coated in, and the coating was pretty flakey. Probably worth the new $200 price or so that they charge for it. If I were going to do it again and bother with powdercoating, I'd go like Podus Rex and do it locally for more money. He has the prettiest silver/grey frame I've ever seen.

Cheers, John

sandblasted, epoxy primed, then topcoated with black Dupont Centari enamel with hardner. Looks like powdercoat, but is much easier to fix when I weld, or otherwise mess up a section.

Sanblasted off the factory black paint, and had it powdercoated with crushed silver with a clear coat on top. (And don't worry about the gap in the roll bar...that's fixed):

Black POR-15 in the invisible areas, and silver with clearcoat in the engine compartment. The silver is the same color as my body stripe. The visible aluminum panels are painted the body color after painting with an etching primer.

Black powdercoat. No one will ever see it. In fact, no one will ever see my painted engine block, my nicely painted transmission, gas tank, lower control arms, or - since I have EFI - not even most of my "cobra" valce covers. Pretty depressing given all that work!

I like pink as an accent color. My girl friend wants me to paint it like a cow. I said it would have to be VERY fast if I did that. I would have the roll bars done aswell and see if I could get TEATSUP for my plate. I am one with my masculinity
