Gonna try my hand at powder coating

Ordered an Eastwood dual voltage kit so I can try my hand at powder coating. I have a charge pipe coming in and I'm gonna start with it. My car is Jerez Black with black interior, should I do it in the jerez black?

I had an Acura TL that I had painted the engine cover almost a pink, I do like bright colors, I just don't know if a BMW can pull it off as well as a Honda.

I've done some home coating and you can really do a lot let your imagination run free. I did a bracket for a fuel pressure gauge that was black with red and clear over top. Very cool. You can do multiple colors/layers on same piece. I haven't tried stencils yet but there's another idea for you. Maybe a background color with a logo stencil in contrast then clear over top. I like the clear top coat as it adds depth
