NOVA powder coating recommendation

Can anyone recommend a powder coating shop in NOVA? Also, would you let them prep the pieces or should I remove any rust/old paint/powder coating prior to bringing it too them? Any idea what it should cost to do the non-foam pieces of a NAS 90 and spare tire carrier?

Dominion Powdercoating in Manassas does all my Powdercoating. They will sandblast anything you bring in too. Prices are reasonable.

If you are more specific on what you need powdercoated I can at least give you a ballpark.

A complete tire carrier should be about $100.

I'm going to powder coat the tire carrier and basically the metal parts of the cage (ie around the windshield, the part behind the drivers seat, and internal part that ties in the rear hoop). Would you paint or powder coat the parts that mount below the tub/front fenders that tie into the frame?

Thoughts on front and rear bumper, powder coat or paint?

I'm basically pulling everything and running out of room. So, I think i'm going to send parts off for paint/powder coating, etc as the parts come off. Then I can label, wrap, store them in the house while I dig deeper into the project.

As always I appreciated your feedback.

I wouldn't reccomend 'extreme powdercoating' in Lorton. They got the job done but it wasn't easy.

Galvanize the parts that go under the body if you can and powder coat the rest

I wouldn't powder coat anything that has the remotest chance of being dinged, scraped, abraded or scuffed.

Next question, where should I go for a respray? The 90 will need min body work so the respray should be straight forward. I'm thinking of using Eurosport in Lorton but would prefer to find someone closer to Arlington if I can find a solid referal.

Thoughts?
