Well, decided to just have it powder coated again ($45). I'll pick it up tues. Or-Fab is who gave (and delivered) the 5 week timeframe. Apparently there's some new management and said another could be shipped within 10 days. Honestly, I just didn't have faith in that. Besides, the local shop wasn't going to ship it back. They said they'd just put it in their inventory and sell it later.
In the end, it'll work out....for just a few more bucks and two more days. I did, however, lose a little faith in the shop. I'm not naming the shop because up to this point, they've taken good care of me and I'll chalk this up as uncommon.
As for color/surface, Or-Fab calls the shiny version "bike black" and the flat dull black is "wrinkle finish." Same bumper on Quadratec is listed as "Gloss black" or "textured black." Ridiculous. Mine will be the later when it's done.
Always follow a great leader. In the absence of a great leader, BE ONE.
