I've done it and it works just fine. The key is in the metal prep to make sure it sticks and there are no impurities under it.

You're correct, don't coat the toe stop or kingpin threads and pivot cups, or any other dimentionally critical surface. You'll hate yourself in the morning if you do.
Find some roller derby girls. Don't try to romance them! That don't end well. okie 10/12/2011
