Hey Waterfoul,
Go with the powder coating.There is a powder coating place here in concord that does small orders.I think he gets about 75 dollars for intakes but the more you have the cheaper he gets
let me know if you need his number.
Good Luck
David

ya know foul . . now that i think about it, if you've only got the one piece to do it might be cheaper to powdercoat it. heck by the time you buy the qt of primer and catylist, a pt of paint, a qt of clear and catylist and also a qt of thinner (these are the smallest quantities this stuff comes in) you may very well be over $150.00.the thing is you hafta use a high end paint product to get the results you want and it probably will not equal the quality of powder coating. . . . the only time it becomes more economical to paint is if you have a bunch of parts to do. . . and the powder coat is much more durable, it's worth looking into . .

Puder, send me an e-mail of what you want done and the color, also if you bead or sand blast first, you get a more durable finish.
my guy can blast it if needed. The turn around time is usually 1hr to 2 days.

Im not looking to do a bunch of peoples stuff but since you asked Ill help.

Mike if you want gather a bunch of your brackets.
