fender liners

tearing my truck apart to repaint. Looking at my fender liners and they are a bit ratty. Has anyone powder coated theirs flat black? Or galvanized or otherwise refinished theirs?

They should be either galvanized steel or plastic from the factory.

I was thinking of powder coating over the Galvy on mine when I do my rebuild. Right now they are looking a little shabby and have rust in some areas. Or is it possible to have them regalvanized?

If it were me, I get them galvanized again. I would be very suspect of powder coating lasting and not causing more rust than less.

Exactly my thoughts unless you are building up a mall cruiser that you won't drive in the rain. If you don't want them galvanized silver hit them afterwards with paint or undercoating. That way they are touch-up-able unlike powder coating.

Galvanizers can now colorize the finish.

guys, thanks for all of the responses. Next question: how about the bracket that holds the overflow bottle? Mine definitely has surface rust. Should I galvanize that as well? That bracket has some flex to it so I'm wondering if there are any concerns with dipping it.

Stuff in the engine bay will be fine properly painted, but galv is always better. Usually the small parts are fine.

You can also electroplate with zinc at home easily for next to no cost.

JSBriggs you are correct. It's basically $109 for up to 50 lbs. If I'm dropping off the fender liners, I can get every bracket in the engine bay too. Already have a galvanized frame, bulkhead and cappings. Plan to drop off the boxes under the seats too. Someone on this list suggested Southwestern Galvanizing in San Antonio. Forgot who it was but thank you.
