Are you going to paint the engine while is on the frame or you will take it out?

Re:my 2002 hot rod roadie build 1 Year, 11 Months ago  
Here is what im thinking. I want the frame, forks and motor all to match. So if i do it i will pull everything off break it down and have it painted/powdered. The thing is i just got the entire midnight bomber cover set. It matches the engine color and has fins like cooling fins on them, just spaced more and not as deep. So those would need to be done as well to make them all look right. And at that point i will polish all the fin edges but i would love to diamond cut all the fins like i did on my red bike but i bet to do all that im looking at $1000-$1200 for the cutting but damn i think it would look sweet
