Anyone in Aurora or Denver that can powder coat a stinger? I just ordered a Poison Spyder
I would powder coat it. I get all of my powder coating done at Pristine Powder Coating in south Denver.

I've used that duplicolor bedliner on my bumpers it held strong for over 2 years. It's super easy and is great for touch ups after encounters with rocks. The problem with powder is one big scrape and you have to try and touch up with spray paint anyways. Might as well have it match.

If it's just for looks then I would use powder.

i would definitely NOT powdercoat a stinger or anything else likely to get rocked up. i only use powdercoating on fancy engine parts that i want to look nice and its durable enough to not chip when you whack with with a wrench handle on accident.

I like using rustoleums hammered finish brush on paint, it looks great, covers up blemishes really well and is really easy to touch up when you mess it up on the rocks. pretty durable as well. though i do caution that it does not go on as well in cooler temps, and the fumes are nasty.

we've reached the time of year when any fab i do will remain unpainted until spring unless we get some awesome warm temps. though the rattlecan version goes on well in the cold, it does not look as nice.

Alright well I'm going with the rustoleum. My friend told me I'd need to sand it down then do a couple coats of that stuff. What kind of sandpaper would I need to use? Also is it a tough job to do? I'm just curious. Thanks guys!

just make sure its clean, roughen up the surface with sandpaper, clean it again, then paint a couple of coats.

the spray on rustoleum will give a finer texture to the 'hammered' look, but would work better in the cold weather. if you use the brush on stuff make sure you wait for a warm day and do it in the sun! it works much much better when its hot out and the paint flows better to create the hammered look. maybe do some test pieces if you go that route.

I jus picked up a couple cans of that stuff. Lets hope it won't be a pain in the ass to put on!
