    I was looking for a place a while ago myself. All the places down here in MA were a bit expensive. ($600 for my 4 rims)
    Maybe Gushers place would be a good idea if you can save some $$

    Bob is the guy who powdercoated my rock sliders. He layed it on real thick and baked the hell out of it. Came out real good and durable. I was told to have them sand blasted first so I went to this guy:

    Haverhill Steam and Sand Blasting

    932 Salem St, Groveland, MA 01834

    (978) 921-5558

    I paid $100 to sand blast it and $200 to powder coat it. I thought it was pricey but it came out very good. The 2 places are 10 min apart and they know each other so if you drop it off at Haverhill Steam and Sand they can bring it to Bob.

    There is a new powdercoating place being built in Griswold CT, about 40 minutes from Providence RI. I'll get the name and post it next time I drive by.

    The place that quoted me in MA was a bit expensive IMO. $600 for all 4, and it would take approx 2 weeks.. Not worth it if you ask me. Think I'm going to paint them black.

    I have a guy/friend that i go to out of lakeville. He's a hobbiest and his oven is on the small side so if you want something bigger than an engine block or rims he probably can't do it. If your interested shoot me a PM ill talk to him and make sure he can. I built an engine a while back and had him do the valve cover and bunch of other misc parts in the engine bay. Came out awesome.

    Since I still think about, should I spend the money to power coat my rims, or just look for a black rim...... any idea or suggestion?
