    I was wondering if anyone out there has a good hook up with a powder coating company in the Dallas area. I have searched the site, but most of the hits were older. I have a couple of friends checking their hook ups, but I wanted to see if anyone has an up to date hook up...thanks

    Sorry, I have no experience with the powder coaters around here. I have a friend with a small setup that has done the little bit of stuff I have had powder coated.

    I had my ARB bumper re-powder coated at Dallas Custom Powder Coating earlier this summer, http://www.custompowdercoating.com/ out the door for $325, took them about two weeks. I don't know if that is a good deal or not, it was my first time having anything powder coated. But it wasn't that much more than the paint quotes I got, so that's why I went with powder coating again.

    Their process is pretty cool, they put the bumper in a giant oven and burned off all the old powder coating, and then they blasted down to bare metal and then powder coated it.

    Heres a few before and after pictures.

    Thanks for the info Jeff! I'm still undecided if I should restrip the rims and paint them, have them powder coated or sell them....

    Scott, I know a guy in Irving who could probably do it for cheap. What exactly do you want powder coated. 4 steel rims?

    Yeah, four steel 16" rims with a semi-gloss finish. they would need to be sand blasted and coated. Thx:)
