RI Powdercoating

Does anyone know any good places in RI to get some powdercoating done? Getting a new bumper in a few weeks that will need to be either painted or coated, just trying to get an idea of what I would like to do.

Never had any work done here, but they sponsored my kid's soccer league, so I figured I would plug them:

You might also factor how you will use the vehicle into the decision. For example, if you plan on actually wheeling it then powercoating is a waste of money. With paint you can easily touch up the scratches.

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...

I painted my rockers and fender flares with rustoleum spray on bedliner.
Seems to be holding up fine so far for the DD and i sprayed them in april.

I am however going to have my bumper powdercoated at work just for the hell of it this fall.

I'd steer clear of the bed liner for bumpers.

As always, the key to successful paint job is surface prep. Grind/sand all loose scale and rust, clean with acetone or similar solvent, prime, and then paint.

Why would you stay clear of bedliners? I've heard a ton on prep, what types of cleaners and primers to use, but not much on what actually should be used to paint it.

Because:

a.) I don't think it looks particularly good on bumpers and

b.) If you change your mind later it is a nightmare to remove.
