Powder Coating Plastic? Thats a new one...painting...all depends on the area, the shop, and how much work they have besides yours. Id say to have it done right would be $200+

Powdercoating would not work on plastic. You have to heat the object in an oven. The plastic would warp and distort. You should be able to get a non dealership paint shop to do it for $150 or so. Just make sure they use Bulldog or other similar bonding/flex agent. This ensures that the paint sticks really well to the plastic aswell as giving it as much flexibility as possible.

Call up a few body shops and get a quote, they're shouldn't be much labor needed to do it, mostly the cost of paint...if you're gettin anything else painted the same color they will usually paint it for little to no cost, atleast the shop I go to does it like that Just try find a decent painter, you get what you pay for when it comes to paint jobs usually, in my experience lol
