Dropping fenders off tomorrow for powder coat and will be installing this weekend. Any tips or tricks for those who have already done the some what tedious task?

Also, should I powder coat the brackets? Wasn't sure if they were exposed or hidden.

I powder coated rear. It turned out great but chipping on the rocks ... Front I sprayed with primer and durable abrasion resistant Truck Bed Coating. It tuned out awesome. And easy to touch up scratches as needed.

Thinking to sand blast the rear and finish same as front.

I finally installed the rear fenders yesterday. I bought the nursert tool and it made the installation easier. I bedlined the brackets and 2 coats of primer and 3-4 coats of bedliner on fenders. I made all the holes tad bit wider. Be prepare to remove the panels in the trunk. I didn't know until further down the instructions that I had to. Also when you have to drill the inside fender just drill a small hole then come around and drill from the inside. Also u need to remove ur taillights. 3 and 1/2 hours installing the rear fenders, front was about 2 and 1/2 hours .... be patient when tightening the screws!

Negative. Haven't removed the old fenders yet. I though Poison had good QC?
Generally they do. Unfortunately when I ordered my PS sliders, I got two of the same side and didn't realize it until AFTER I had them powder coated. That was my idiot moment. Good to check first.

Yep, one left, one right.

Went to powder coaters today. I was originally just going to do "dash black" but figure for the money, I mights as well do something more for the money than I could get out of a can. Going for the one of the left - chrome/lollipop red. Almost metallic that should blend well with the silver metallic and break it up a bit:
