Rear bumper painting Denver area ?

Anyone recommend someone in the Denver area that they have used to pull the rear cross member and have it blasted and painted? Would rather pay someone than to do this myself. Thanks in advance!

Ha-2

Are you talking about the Bumper? The Crossmember is part of the frame.

Roadrunner Fabrication will blast it for cheap. Pull it yourself, it'll take less then an hour. Roadrunner will also powder coat it yourself. Up to you on painting it yourself but a rattle can will work. It's like 4 bolts. The hardest part is washing it first.

If you would rather pay out of the nose there is a phenomenal autobody shop at Santa Fe and Dartmouth that will do whatever you want. http://stuttgartltd.com

Or another shop that's probably closer to you that actually does body work for the LR dealers. They did some body work on a black 90 for me and it was amazing. I believe Larry is the owner but it's been 10 years since I spoke to him.

I used Roadrunner to do a bumper, tire carrier, sliders and some other stuff. The PC looked great and it was cheap. Just don't expect them to be super quick- they tend to wait until they have a bunch of stuff but it took my stuff maybe two weeks.

Thank you so much! I would pull it myself if the weather would warm up long enough to stay outside a few hours. I will call the body shops and find out what the prices are. I need to get my 3rd light bar powder coated too so I can do it all at once.

That did cross my mind Jeff, but seeing as I never drive in the rain or snow, I think I will just repaint or powder coat.

You do realize a chic is telling you to man up and do it yourself. I did mine in the garage without heat, in February, in CO. But, if you want to surrender your man card any mechanic will pull it for an hour of labor- Firestone comes to mind. Easy $. Just don't lose the washers.

Jeff is correct- galvanize it. Dave Lucas has a place to galvanize. You can rattle can or powder coat over the galvanizing if you want it black again.

Hahaha you are right, I will give it a shot. Good excuse to go ahead and get a heater for the garage already. I will holler at Dave about his galvanize connection, and just repaint myself. Thanks again for the motivation!

North American Galvanizing in Commerce City can hot dip it for you but you'll have to pay their minimum. Dan at Roadrunner can powder coat for you, too.

North American Galvanizing has changed their name to AZZ. I think they were bought.

AZZ galvanizing is the place I had my stuff dipped but as other have said they have a min poundage and you will pay that min even if you take in 1 small part. Best bet is to go in with a few other people and split the cost.

Powdercoating / blasting.
http://www.premiumpowdercoating.com/

Color you want is BK08 it is a close match to the factory color and one they shoot all of the time so it will cost less. Shane has been good to me over the years

Just blasting
A-1 sand blasting in Golden is the best place I have found in the area to get blasting or acid dip done.
