Are you wanting to do some powdercoating yourself or are you looking for a company that does it? Clay

Body shops aren't usually set up to do it, some are, but probably not many. The shop needs to sandblast the parts first, then coat, then bake in an oven. I looked in the yellow pages under coatings - protective and found one. Clay

I have 2 companies here. The one I use only powder coats and does quality work. The other is a shop that makes trailers and has a big oven also. When all is said and done you can't beat the prices compared to a good 3 part paint.
