It is my daily driver and will be for a couple years, so any wheeling will be kept to a minimum as I can't afford to be without a vehicle if anything were to happen. In 2-3 years I hope to relegate it to "toy" status so I can do some more serious wheeling. I will probably be going the paint route just because it is going to be significantly cheaper than powercoating, but figured I would explore my options.
If I decide to go the paint option, any suggestions on which type of paint? I've heard everything from regular black spraypaint, to bedliner, to other random things...
