Rear Corner Guards

Three questions:

1) I've got nickle diamond plate rear corner guards on my jeep now. I'd like to paint them black. Powder coat is my first choice. How much would that cost?

2) If its too much, would just roughing them up and painting them flat black be almost as good?

3) Where could I find black diamond plate rear corner guards with holes already cut for the tail lights and gas? I haven't found any at all.

the rear corner panels will have a tendency to flex when you remove/install them..I would think that might crack powder coating but am not sure

Good 1/4 guards won't bend or flex

I would think you should be able to get them coated for around $50, if you have a local shop. The closest shop we have down here is an hour drive for me, so I pretty much paint everything.

If they were mine, I would ruff them up with 80 grit paper, give them a good rinse with rubbing alcohol, let them dry & shoot them with some rattle can bed liner.

I've used that method for years & had great luck with it. People forget that isopropyl alcohol was originally an industrial solvent. It works great at prepping an area for paint.

You can buy black powder coated diamond plate rear corners with holes cut from Morris 4x4... I have them and they look great.. Cost about 150 and they are secured by rivets.
