Default Powdercoating in the Chicago Area

OK (this worked so well for finding a good fiberglass guy in the chicago area):

1.Who have you used in the Chicago area for powdercoating?
2. Were you satisfied with the results?

I have both of my TRS transom plate/gimble assemblies disassembled and want to have the components powdercoated. Whomever does it needs to mask them properly to keep coating out of certain areas.
Monty recommended LO-KO performance coatings in Oak Lawn.
The stuff they did for him looks great. I was going to use them unless somebody gives me a reason not to.
Anybody have any input?
Thanks,
DS

Call Greg. He owns a powdercoating company by the name of Gorilla. It's in Chicago, southside. Nice guy to deal with.

There is a guy down here in DeMotte that does some great work, but that may be a bit out of the way for you.

I know a guy looking for someone to do some anadizing. Anyone know of someone out my way?

Dan,

I just dropped off 4 oil coolers today at LOKO to get ceramic coated and they have a 3 week turn around time right now. In the past it's been 3-5 business days, I guess they are really busy with Spring and the car show season coming up.
