  • Window frame color opinions

    About to pull my window frame and have it powdercoated as the black is starting to peel and chip. I was wondering if anyone has changed the color of their frame. Black doesnt really match the boat colors, and does get hot. I was thinking of doing a matte silver or white. What do you guys think, or should I just go back with black!?

    Maybe step out of the box and be a trendsetter. What about Navy Blue or Yellow based on the colors of your boat? I think it would look cool on this boat.

      I thought about matching the main colors too, but I am not sure it would flow well with the colors spotted everywhere. Put so much thought into this I think I have confused it all! I plan to take the speaker pods and have them redone to match the tower too.

        Is it easy to do? Honestly never looked around for screws and then all the rubber seals and stuff. What does the powdercoat run? Mine is a little chipped up as well and if it's easy I would consider it.

          I haven't taken mine out yet, but hope to in the next week or so. There are screws and looks to be pretty simple. NautiqueJeff just did it and looks like it didn't take too long, and depends on your powdercoater I guess on price. I am figuring about $200ish.

            If you could get a powdercoat color that would match the tower color that would maybe look cool with the tower being that color, but hard to say... Blue would be so close to black you might as well leave it black... Silver would be the only other color I'd think about as I don't think white would look right.

            Honesty black would be my first choice then silver.

              It doesnít look like the tower is a perfect match to the gel coat. Adding a third yellow would be super risky at best and would probably look tacky. IMO, Iíd go matte or satin black to mimic it looking anodized. Definitely not gloss. Silver is an option I guess, but why introduce a fifth color?

                My 2005 210 came with a silver tower and window frame. I had both powder coated and loved it. Went satin on the windshield and gloss on the tower. Itís also a good time to tint the windows (if youíre into that) while the frames are off.

                  yeah not planning on doing anything outside of either matte silver, matte white, or matte black.

                      I did it on my 98 SN and did black with a little good fleck to match the gold pin striping. I think it looks awesome it only really shows in the sunlight. It was pretty easy and only cost 150. The hardest part is getting the frame off.

                        Matte black would be first choice with matte white as second.

                        I would be a hard no on silver

                          Looks like I am going back black. Wish I could see the white just to know, but donít feel like paying $200 to see and not liking it.

                            Little late to the party, but I think white would look awesome. Different enough to make it stand out, but not too risky where it looks strange. Hard to find other examples online, but the few white windshield frames I do see look really sharp.

                              Iím not sure if this helps or not, but may help you visualize what white would look like. You can kind of get an idea with the white from the design package. Just have to imagine that over the whole frame. I think it could look good as long as the two whites from your boat and the frame donít clash.
