Poison Spyder powdercoating?

Just ordered a hood louver for my JK. I ordered bare aluminum, but my buddies are trying to convince me to cancel my order and get the powdercoated one.

Opinions on the quality of Poison Spyder powdercoating

You can always powdercoat it locally, if thats the finish you prefer.

But to your question... No, have never had any issues with their PC.

Going back and forth between black or white. If I go black, it would make more sense to have it pc'd. But atm I'm leaning pretty heavily toward white, so it's a bit of a non issue I guess.

You'll be hard pressed to get anyone local to powder coat it for $30, but if you don't want black then you have no other option.

Do you live where there is road salt? If so, paint it. You'll regret powder coating in the long run.

If you don't.. then it's hard to beat for 30$ like mentioned.

Louver ???

you would be crazy not to get it powder coated for the price difference.

It is not going to see abuse and rock rash and will late the life of your jeep !

Very true but since I already have everything else painted with the same stuff I just want to keep it the same, probably my OCD kicking in. Plus when you tell the wife it cost 130 vs 160 it's much easier for the boss to agree !!lol

A friend of mine painted his body color at home and even with good prep, it still ended up peeling around the outside edges.

The amount of heat expansion and cooling puts a lot of stress on the paint. In his situation, he saved a few bucks. But now has to take it off and do it again or have it continue to look like shit.

I have not seen this with any of the others who have had theirs professionally painted/powdercoated.

That's not to say it cant be done right at home. But the few extra bucks was worth it to me to have it done right the first time.

Really, do tell... I'm sure you have a story about a PC failure you can share?

If you leave it completely unprotected it will oxidize.... If you want it to retain the finish it has now, have it clear-coated (powdercoat or paint).

I found a powder that matched my body color... done!

But, engine enamel would be a good choice (with proper prep)
