bumper/brush bar reconditioning

Does anybody know where I can send my D'95's bumpers and brush bar for reconditioning? Is it cheaper just to buy new ones?

The guys at Orange County Powder Coating in Newburgh are really good, but you can probably find someone closer.

Does your brush bar have the aweful vinyl-dipped "candy coating" on it? If so, burn as much off with a torch before taking it to the powder coater - that stuff is hell to sandblast off with glass beads and savvy PC guys will realize that and charge you commensurately. You can make their life easier by removing as much as you can in advance.

80 bucks is cheap - good luck finding that price.

Do you guys powder coat the bumper too? I always thought of just paint.

If you really want to go nuts, have it sand blasted and put Blek POR on it. Ask your local body shop to finish it. Once it has the Blek done you can choose to have it painted or not. Whatever you do dont get that stuff on any of your skin.

I can attest to that - three weeks scrubbing with porous cleaner... still had black marks all over my arms and legs...
