    Powdercoat. With the modularity you built into the rack, and it is expected to go together and come apart quite frequently, the PC would hold up better than paint to the extra traffic. You can always paint to touch up if necessary. Great design BTW. Mine will be similar. :thumbsup:

    Thank you. I'll start getting quotes now. How much do you guys think it should cost for powder coat, including the storage rack?

    $200 to powdercoat the whole rack and basket. Now 10 shades of black and 6 texture options to decide on. :)

    I'm gonna do it!

    That's about what I figured. Good price. FWIW, if they have a textured black, it's a dead nuts match to rattle can bedliner if you ever need to touch up. The texture will also hide and scratches or imperfections better than a flat black or other solid non-textured color. Ask them to do a thick coat on the basket. I've seen a lot of expanded metal start to rust through the PC because the powder didn't get into all the nooks and crannies, especially around the spot welds at the edge of the expansions.

    That is a good price. I was thinking it was going to be around $350, and I'd also go with textured black or a matte finish. Thant Ibis is sick too!

    So sick!!! Here's another photo of the Ibis with its massive 2.5 tire. It's as big as other 2.8 tires I have. Big knobs and 15 psi so it is ready for where the truck takes it.

    If I can take these tires off, I'd powdercoat the wheels too. And some old bike frames. What else is in the garage....PB080021.jpg

    Contact a dealership, or make friends with a guy who works there! Alot of people buy TRD trucks then want leather. I got brand new TRD seat fabrics for $200, installed in a weekend. Brand new seats, $200! If you need help on install lemme know, 1st seat took me all of a Saturday, but after learning the process, the rest took 20mins each.
