    Hey guys I went to my local powder coating place and they priced me at 250 thats for both bumpers and my billet grill...I am going with a gloss black....I have a couple of questions..does that sound like a pretty good price......or should i just paint them my self???Also i am blacking out my truck do you think it would look stupid if i didn't powder coat the billet or do you think it would make it pop????One more lol what is the process of painting the bumper i heard it chips really easy that why i may powder coat it.....

    blacked out

    Thats a pretty good price for all that bro! I did my billet grille and the whole front myself. Cost me like $50 in materials...ive had the billet paint for like 3 months and still no chips. Im in the process of painting my truck flat black to have it all blacked out, there charging me $800 but thats for everything bumps,mirrors..whole thing. I actually found a pretty cool website to do it but I deleted right before I logged on this lol. Its mainly sanding and addinf etching primer to stick to the metal of the bumpers and the grille. Its pretty easy

    I think i may just go with the powder coat,it seems like a good deal and I think it would last alot longer, but one quick question what is etching primer?????I was checking your truck out and i like the grill alot it looks really good i think i am gonna coat that to!!!
