The same opportunity for failure applies to both powder coating and or just a simple rattle can quick fix. I would suggest the powder coating as it's the most durable (& most expensive) but you get what you pay for. Either route you take, prep is the most important part of the whole process - and if you're going to PC - then you need to get the parts sandblasted before hand. Good Luck!

Wesboy The hardest part of the job will be getting the old hinges off.

The Korean If you decide you want to powder coat them let me know. I met a guy a couple of weeks ago (who I see just about every morning on my way to work... drives a huge lifted truck) that's located in St Clair Shores that will do it for pretty cheap.

spy I would powder coat them if it can be done cheap aka if you know someone.
Or I would get some (semi gloss paint from rustolium) and spray paint them, make sure to do all prep work, than get some (semi gloss krylon fusion for plastic) for the fender flares or just get new fender flares.
good luck

Himges & body

I'm in Michigan, so we have some snow, salt, salt and a little more salt. My door and tail gate hinges are shot, they were when I bought the jeep. I picked up hinges (doors, body, tailgate, window, hood) pull offs from other jeeps. My question is, should I "powder coat", "under coat", "rhino line" or just spray them? I would prefer flat black but a gloss black wouldn't offend me. I have to do the body under the doors as well. I have to do something with the flares as well, I'd like it all to match, but I don't want to totally mess the body up for a new paint job..
