powder coated grill

a few weeks ago i had my emblems and lights blacked. when i got it back i was less than pleased with the apperance. the chrome grill against the black lights looked retarded. anyway i was told by someone powder coating would not stick to the chrome grill. i just talked to the guy at a powdercoating shop who told me he does it all the time and it works. anybody know or had it done.

If the grill is plastic it will most likely melt during the process.

But if the grill is metal just sand down the chrome and the powder will adhere to it quite well.

Just like big said the plastic will melt since they have to put the item in an oven at 350* to cure the powder.

he is full of crap too, it will melt. i used to do powdercoating and we never did any kind of plastic...... it bakes in an oven at temps as high as 500 F.

I would buy the FX4 grill and not waste the money trying to PC plastic...or paint your chrome grille...

I painted the chrome unit on my EX.

painting was never an option. it would just be a lot cheaper to pc mine and its different than the fx4. they want 540 for a new fx4. 200 to pc it.
