Howzit guys,

Am trying to fit an engine and swingarm back into a frame that's been powder coated. problem is, coating seems to make it difficult to get the engine and swingarm back into place.

Is there a way to remove the coating in certain area's without causing it to peel an flake off later?

Dont want to damage the coating if it removing some will cause it ruin the frame.

Any advice would be appreciated

Hey bud!
Carefully!
Don't rush it or you will damage it. Tap the holes and use a sharp scalpel blade to remove elsewhere. Patience makes perfect! A mate did his "normal" black/ grey frame in the ktm orange and came out pretty nice!

The best way to do the coating is to prepare for it before it goes in. I usually cover or plug all the threads and holes plus I cover contact areas with masking tape. Just like you will when painting.
