If powdercoat is properly cured then acetone won't affect it. Your rails must have not been in the oven long enough. There is a huge difference between the durability of a properly powdercoated part and one that was not done correctly. I've done some experiments to prove it! That being said, I do powdercoating also and I like the look of polished better too.US1Fountain said:My 32 had powdercoated railing. It had chips where the cockpit cover snaps had hit them. Also seemed to always look dirty. I removed them all and striped the PC off, then polished. So much better now. I like the polished look myself.
They are not simply PC over a polished rail. At least from Fountain. These are mine with the coating removed using acetone. They appeared to have a mediablast texture. Took hours to sand them somewhat smooth before taking them to the buffing wheel. A past winter project. And a winter project it was.
