Default Powdercoat Guy?

Who's the powdercoat guy on the board? Do we still have one?

A pair of coil springs for my truck. Nothing fancy, just bright red and want it to be durable. Looking to order them and have them drop-shipped to someone that can powdercoat them and ship them to me in CO.

Is powdercoating durable on coils that flex all the time?

A basic two color is 30.00 when you start adding more colors the amount of time involved goes up and so does the price. What are you looking for?

Here is my FB album page with some of the one I have done.

yes, but even more flexible and less durable.

They come powder coated (black) anyway, so it's not like I'm making them any worse. I did some research on the interwebz, and it seems PC should be plenty durable if done right. There's a theory that a full-time PC shop that depends on making local customers happy will do a better job than whatever shop the manufacturer uses to get them in and out for mass production.

Never heard back from Matt; I'm sure he's busy. Found a shop here in CO that's going to do them for $90. At that price, I can get them redone every year if I really need to. Plus, this shop was one of several I called around to that committed to actually getting them done by the deadline I needed (next weekend), so that's cool.

I'll try to remember to post some pics when they are done and installed.

Did you message him on here? If so, I donít think he gets on here at all anymore. I could be wrong.

Nah, on FB last night. He actually just responded about 5 minutes ago, but the order has already been placed and they're being drop-shipped to the shop up here. Oh well. Probably would have been too much hassle to try to get them to TX and back to me in time, anyway.

Yeah, probably. Glad you got fixed up though!
