Actually, my engine compartment was spotless, and I must say, pretty impressive...except for that crud BMW sprays on exported cars to protect the aluminum... was really sick of that gold stuff (why couldn't they just paint the whole thing a nice even gold?). Anyway, powder coating is really strong powder paint that is applied on a hot part...then baked. It flows everywhere due to a static electric charge... nice coverage. Now looks pretty good... or will when it is all installed!
