    ok, so im angel is pretty scratched up and i want to powder coat it. as far as i know you have to put some kind of charge on what ever you are powder coating so the powder will stick to it right? well, my angel has electronics inside so will this mess anything up?

    hope that makes sence

    You'd have to disassemble it and send the individual parts out to be powdercoated.

    well i have everything but the wires, hammer, ram, etc disassembled. you could spray it right now without getting it on stuff that shouldnt be painted. im wondering if i can get away with leaving them in.

    If it were me, i would send it off. but if you want to do it yourself definatly take everything out. Spray it when its just the bare frame.

    Cruddy thin anodizing scratches easily, if you get it hard anodized it'll be alot tougher.
