What would be the idea process of painting over powder coating?

The reason I ask is 4WD is running a killer deal on Poisoon Spyder Tan powder coated fenders - $596 for front and rear Steel fenders shipped - https://www.4wd.com/p/poison-spyder-front-steel-crusher-flares-standard-width-tan-powder-coat-17-03-030tan/_/R-FVNN-17-03-030TAN?utm_source=listrak&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20170517_smittybilt_flash_sale&trk_msg=GJU8CG0AQH34FBJGBBPF8MG63C&trk_contact=EQ0HVR7PTJMF89BJ6HDT42ED1C&trk_sid=3642M0IBDM0PO35NR0OK22VIQ8

Tan is no-go on my blue JK. Could I get away with stain black rattle can after prepping? Or would it be necessary to apply a black powder coat?

Thanks,
Lee

For that price you could just get them re coated and still come it way under.

Or just rough them up, rub them down with a solvent, self etching primer, rattle can bedliner, enjoy.

If I just didn't put a deposit on my upcoming lift I would have been all over these

You don't have to put powder over it. Powder coat is a plastic (usually polyester), so a plastic primer would be good. I teach powder coating at a makerspace and have had a few people paint designs over powder without problem.

If it's a textured powder you don't even need to scuff it. If it's gloss then just scuff it up good and you'll be golden.

I already have Crusher flares on my 2016 but I went ahead and ordered these for the wife's 2017. Great deal.

The original link said, "Ships today!" Yeah, not so much...

Still says "processing order" almost 24 hours later. I'm not concerned yet, but Amazon and my dealings with Qtec, etc have spoiled me.
