Aluminum Panniers Coating
I recently purchased a used set of aluminum panniers from a member here.. While shiny aluminum is pretty, I'm kicking around making them black on the inside and outside..
They're currently painted on the inside to help keep everthing from getting black from rubbing on aluminum.
What I'm wondering is what have you seen as far as coating that I can apply to the outside?? I've currently got a couple cans of flat black industrial spray paint.. I like it because it's cheap and easily touched up, but it's not very tough..
I've kicked around bed liner, but again, I want to do this myself and I don't want crappy looking bags as a result. The stuff I've seen doesn't give a uniform finish, and I don't want my bags to look like a 4 year old painted them with an old, used 6" paint brush.
Powder coating is nice but I don't have any of the stuff, and expense is also to be considered..
Any suggestions, or should I just use the spray bombs of flat black??
