They're aluminum and currently anodized blue. I'm wanting to get them refinished to look new again.

Thanks!

I went with powder coat on the new aluminum idler pulley that replaced the stock Mercury plastic one. I used candy blue powder and it matches really well. Look at the idler pulley bellow the heat exchanger.

Eddie had that one done in Nashville, but not sure where. I know Travis Powder Coating has the same candy blue, because I have a few other pieces they did for me that match the pulley. I would try them or Stewy's here locally.

Has anyone powder coated mercury 525 valve covers? Mine started peeling so I stripped them last season and left them raw aluminum. They look okay but I'm thinking about powder coating them blue if it will last. Maybe anodizing would be better?
