Touching up powdercoating

Don't think so, but is there any better method of touching up the gouges, scratches on our powdercoated sliders, etc. other than a matching can of Rustoleum? Curious.

For my bumper (XHD) where it took some major rock hits and chipped, I have been using bed liner and it has worked great. I clean/sand the chipped area, paint it with few coats of rust-preventative paint, and then hit it with some bed liner. Almost invisible.

Hey, almost every powder coater can get the color in a spray can for touch ups. just ask the guy that did it. He may have to order it, but its worth a try. Or remove a piece and have your local paint/body store color match it and do it yourself. You could probably ask to have a 2 in 1 paint in a can. Thats base and clear coat in one application.
