And then you always have your Line-X option. I am still going between paint, Line-X and Vinyl wrap. Easy to do, you need to get it media sprayed to remove the chrome, but powder coating may be the most cost effective. I will post some pics once i decide.

Powdercoat....had mine done, and I am so happy I went that route over paint. As Barney said, more durable than paint and waaaaayyyyy more cost effective.

They can be sprayed just as well. No need to strip the chrome, just rough it up with a sandblaster to give some "profile" for the primer to adhere to. Don't even think about using a rattle can.....good quality automotive paint that uses hardener, plus a good primer / sealer underneath and it will last for years. :tu:

Ain't that the truth!

Also, correct me if I am wrong, but I am pretty sure you guys can match most any color with powdercoat. I absolutely love how mine turned out and it seems to be very durable!:tu:
