I emailed Heed also yesterday but did not get a reply.I have emailed Heed asking about their coating method as I'll need to know for sure when it comes to applying more paint. I'm 90% certain it's painted but then it could be a poor powder coat application. Who knows, I'm not an expert.
Cool, I did not see that but it sounds like from others it's just paint - could be a very thin/cheap powdercoat.Heed claims on their website "everything is powder painted in black (most of the range)
Assuming "most of the range) includes their crash bars, maybe a poor process that they use?
