I donno, there isn't a lot of metal on a Celi to powdercoat.

Brake calipers? But you would have to have the right paint.

rims are the things that seem the most obvious to powdercoat in my mind...

They are not plastic, just the stupid cover that covers the valve covers is plastic. The actual valve covers are metal on both motors.
