Reputable powder coater in chicago land area

Any recommendations? I need to get my bumper done. Ideally I would like to do it in the city but it would be cheaper for me to take a trip out to the burbs and get it done...

East or west side of CHI...we have a very good Powder coater here in the Fort....our factory is "growing" and we regularly (bi-weekly) send things out to them...not sure of pricing though. Could MAYBE UPS it back and forth?

shipping would be way too much. Anything within 30 miles of the city would be good for me.

Please let me know what you end of paying for the powder coat job. I am leaning to just using Rustoleum Bedliner, picked up a can to try, and I am impressed. I want to compare the $25 for primer/bedliner to the powdercoating price (yes I know it will be more trying to find out how much more).

Thanks!
