Default Paint for my rearsets

What do you guys suggest for painting the OEM RearSets. I am looking to probably do some sort of rattle can and i want it to be black to match the frame. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

I thought about doing something similar to mine, but a good friend pointed out that if i rattle canned them, they would likely peel or chip due to the everyday contact your feet have on them.

He suggested maybe powder-coat or after-market anodized rear-sets.
Just a heads up bud.

Yeah i was trying to go the cheapest way possible =).... Probably will see if any one around does powder coating and see what it will cost.. I doubt its a lot for something so small...

Definitely powdercoat. Paint won't last, it'll cost you more in the long run to keep touching it up.

These guys did mine. $30 + cost to ship the rearsets to them will get you a good powdercoat. http://www.tripageled.com/PAGES/hondaother.htm

I powdercoat and i did mine and i like it alot but i did mine gloss black but now i want the raw aluminum back because im getting ready to polish my frame and im going to polish the rearsets also. but i would say if you want it to look like the frame its called texture black.

I got my heal guards and under tail powder coated for $30. So just your rearsets wont cost you much and it wont peal after first use.

Im guessing flat black would match the frame better then gloss black?
