I'd be down, but I work M-F 9-5. Off every weekend. I'll be out of town this weekend, and Christmas weekend, but ready to wheel any other. Hit me up next time you guys get out.

Ricky 940-632-7633 you can text or call.

Kind of off topic, but do any of you Vegas guys use/recommend a powder-coating place here in Vegas? I want to get my corners and bumpers done.

Thanks,
Ricky

I would just paint them yourself...if they are corners and bumpers, chances are they will touch rocks and you'll be sad when that expensive powder coat comes off.

Grab 2 cans of krylon satin black, take an hour of your time, and be done until you have to touch them up.

Thats what I did, lasted forever until i would scratch the paint off on a rock, then it took 30 seconds to touch up (I only painted the WHOLE bumpers once, but would just shoot a spot if it got chipped)

I would, but my bumpers and corners are aluminum and spray paint does not stick well on it. I wan't everything satin black anyway, and touch ups will be easy enough.

Haha, no actually they have a less chance of "denting" vs steel. Aluminum has a "memory" some what. All my stuff is formed from 3/16" 6061 and very strong. On my old buggy all my suspension links and steering was 1.75" 7075 aluminum, never had a problem.

Here is my aluminum stuff.
