    As many of you know, I was rear ended about 6 weeks ago. I have bought front and rear bumpers and am having them metalized.

    As per Eric at tactical rovers it is best to powder coat them locally. So I am looking for a good powder coater here to get this done.

    The talk around the campfire this weekend was that you were going to paint them instead- so you can touch them up.

    Me personally, I've seen a lot of rusted bumpers and sliders because of cracked and chipped powder coatings where water got underneath.

    Hence the reason I’m having them coated with zinc. ;)

    That’s why I metalized. ;)
    Another good reason is it’s hard to patch up if it scratches. I’m willing to deal with that.

    Use bandaids to cover those spots, the ones with power rangers work great.

    Looks good. Got to have that logo on there, just like the opener they gave us.
    Maybe a rubber pad on the bottom where the cans go to keep the rattles to a min.

    I was thinking about that. A thin layer.

    Perhaps a thin layer could be made from a placemat cut to fit the space. Inexpensive and easy to get.

    I was thinking of a sticky back rubber material.
