I'm looking at getting some sliders and I was debating between painting and powdercoating. What kind of paint are you guys using? and why did you not powdercoat?
Also, when the welder grinds the frame down to metal, do you put anything on there for rust protection? paint and primer maybe?

thanks guys
I used the Rust-Oleum flat black with primer for my Avid sliders. I used the same paint to cover the areas of bare metal where they were welded as well. I used this out of fear that my Hi-lift would scratch the powder coating off and there's no removing the welded sliders for touch ups.

I just used black rustoleum hammered spray paint too. Easy to touch up and inexpensive. I just hit the spots that he grinder down on the frame with the same paint. Think this paint stops the rust process, at least just prevents moisture and air from getting to the bare metal.
