How do you get those things painted? Does it hurt longevity of system? Want to paint mine when I get it. Just to be different.

Probably just high-temp paint and a glaze - David Weaver should be able to point you in the right direction. Shouldn't hurt longevity in the least.

Sean advised me not to powder coat because of the high temperatures associated with the powder coat process (for supercharger only). He said use a standard automotive, hi quality exterior paint. That is what we did.

Would painting it effect the durability of the S/C? So does that mean I should just get the black one instead of the polished one?
Thanks

Now, he was talking about the actual compressor itself, right? I had the tubes powdercoated red(by Sean's shop). I assume it's because of the heat developed by the compressor.

KingViper,
Call Joe Donavon at King Dodge in St. Louis 314.832.7200. He has painted
many Roe S/C's. He did the red one with the "supercharged" script on the
tube.

Hey,
I do mine with a sealer primer and then use a base coat clear coat process. The temperature is no higher on the blower than the valve covers ... I have been painting valve covers, intakes, and blower related parts for quite a while now and have never had a problem ... knock on wood. Just make sure you prep it right and bake it afterwards and you should be good to go. If you are going to paint, I would buy the black kit and customize it yourself and save a few bucks on the polished unit. Hope that helps.
Later,
Joe @ King Dodge
