Painting over powdercoat advice


Feature Bike
So I want to tart up an old fork, mostly one colour, but with a different coloured section round the crown.

Plan is to powder coat the whole thing, then paint over the crown detail. Any advice on what type of paint to use? Can I just roughen the coated surface prime and paint with rattlecan? Or is there a more specialist paint that would adhere better (colour is gloss black so nowt fancy).

They can do some nice fades with powder coat these days so worth asking/getting a price. The usual time vs. money conundrum! But all powder will be more durable vs. a wet paint fade over the top of powder and a lot less stress for you.
