Default Powder Coating This Winter

I am planning to powder coat anything and everything on my bike that I can this winter and am wondering what you guys would think about powder coating my swing arm to match the yellow of the bike.

Only concern I would have is that since I have a 2002 F4i the yellow is much brighter than the 04-06 model and model be a bitch to actually keep it clean, but I think it would look freaking sweet.

Opinions on the swing arm and also suggestions about what all can be powder coated on the bike are welcome.

Can Aluminum be PC'd? I'd like to have all of the foot rest stuff (fornt and rear) powder coated black.

Pretty much anything metal that can hold up to the heat can be pc'd.

It would be pretty hard to color match, but it'd be different!

Aluminum isn't magnetic (non ferrous) how does the powder stick before baking?

It's possible! All you have to do is heat up the aluminum at 400 for 10 to 15 minutes then start powder coating it.
