I chose powder-coat over paint because the paint on the first diesel got stained by leaking fuel. Powder has a harder finish and better chemical resistance.
The next step has been modifying the frame and engine so they can fit together. I shaved the rear valve cover to improve the clearance.
The final major hurdle before I can assemble a rolling chassis will be fabricate the engine mounts. I am using flat bar stock and a MIG welder to slowly construct a strong foundation for the huge v-twin.
