I thought about getting it PC'd but not sure I can replace the crumbling rubber seals. So anyone have theirs done? If so what did you do?
Stock 521 air intake, paint or PC?

I don't understand the excitement over powder coat! After all it's nothing more than a thin coat of melted plastic. Bond to the metal is dependent on surface preparation. If you are going to do a proper clean and de-grease, why not do a proper prime and paint, it will last a lot longer.

This pic is the only one I could find and would have been taken shortly after painting the valve cover and air cleaner. The OE color is a shade or 2 more pale.
High temp primer and paint.

1968 VW chrome blue is a very close match to the original color of the Datsun air cleaner housing.
Got a link to the paint code or where I can buy this in a rattle can? L51K?

Worse case text me the paint code and I'll get one made and send it to you if you need.... but you should be able to find a local place....
