Rebuilt electric motors are often painted after testing, but this varies from one client to another. In some cases, forklift rebuilt motors are covered with a surface treatment of baking paint. Motor surface paint is a type of insulating paint used on the surface of motors. It has good adhesion to varnish, is durable, and can resist water, oil, and rust. The paint also resists foggy conditions and cold weather.

No matter which method is used to rebuild the forklift electric motor, each must pass inspections before leaving the workshop so that only high-quality machinery is sent out to clients. Many rebuilt electric motors are returned to the workshop, given this final test is not carried out. The following video shows an electric motor rebuilding:
