    I'm doing a final assembly on a new project. Has anyone found a brake fluid resistant coating that I could use on a master cylinder?

  4. I'll second that, but check with the supplier before coating; not all powders are fully resistant.

    image.jpeg Mine has hah Eastwood cast iron exhaust manifold paint for 5 yrs and still looks great. I'm careful not spill anything on it. You can see it is slightly different color because there was no repeated heat curing, only the first time in an oven.
