LOROLR I would think it's going to be pretty hard to match, especially translucent where the color depends on the number of color coats. Why not get the color you want in a good epoxy paint and paint the block and engine parts together? Never been much on powder coating engine blocks or parts because of the fine grade blast residue left. Had a race pan powder coated and told the guy not to coat the inside for obvious reasons and the idiot blasted the inside anyway. Took a ton of cleaning to get the grit out. At least paint dust will desolve, the sand grit won't. Just one guy's opinion.

paint matching powdercoating

I'd like to powder coat my engine with a translucent red but what would I do with the block. I will have a fair amount of money in this block after machine work and I don't know any powder coaters I'd trust with it. Therefore, I would rather paint it but how would you match translucent powder coating? Anyone else had similar problems?
