Re: Swingarm coating suggestions
If you want durability, look no further than powdercoating. The high wear parts I have done (wheels, swingarm, engine parts, etc.) are 13 years old and look the same as the day I brought them home from the powdercoater, and not a stone chip. And inexpensive too. That said, make sure you find someone experienced and with a good reputation, otherwise it may not last.
Other coatings while not as durable may give you a look you may like better. Powder coating film thickness varies to some degree, so on some high gloss colors, the finish may give uneven sheen in places where the shape changes, if that makes sense. For example, anodizing will be more even and give consistent reflections
