Good Stuff!  It's always wise to learn new skills.

Ride on,

Black would be perfect.  I'll check ya when it's done. Making a bracket to mount on the passenger seat on the bike.

Depending on the process and applicator but thickness could range from .002" and all the way up to .010" (or more). There are ISO/ASTM standards but it applies for aerospace/defense industries. If done properly, thickness should be around .002-.003 (or so) and will provide a nice durable coat for cosmetic and protection purposes.

Any threads and bearing surfaces should be taped-up prior to PC.
