What are the pros and cons of paint or patina? For the build I've got in mind (burrito) no finish at all is the norm. Original when you can and leave the welds hanging out there for everyone to see. But I love bare metal, with patina you have to blend the new parts in or they stick out like a sore thumb. So, where are you guys at? We've just finished the MBBO so I've smelt enough flake and shine for a while. But what do you guys have going on? Carl.
