ipleadda2nd Thanks guys. I believe whatever it's coated with will scrape off. I guess the most important thing is how easy it is to touch up. Rattle can paint sounds like the winner. I'll look into Rustoleum Hammered black.

TJDave Rustoleum Hammered black on my UCF skid. Works good for frame and axle touch ups too.

Imped Rocks don't care how hard the coating is. It's all coming off. Rattle can. Powdercoating ANYTHING that is there to protect the vehicle is absolutely stupid.

Maltese I think powdercoating skid plates is ridiculous if nothing else under your vehicle is coated that way. That price is not bad if it encludes blasting.

To Powder Coat or not?

I just got some Under Cover Fab skids for my tcase and tranny/engine. They come bare so I need to finish them.

Powder coating seems to be harder than any rattle can paint. Therefore should last longer and look good longer. I got a local quote for $155, including a clear coat (powder coating as well).

Since they're skids they don't need to look great. I figure any finish will scratch off when smashing against rocks.

What do you guys think?
