Default Need opinion. White truck...

Fellas. I'm days away from powder coating my stockers and putting new tires on the truck. As it sits now the truck is white with 5% tint on the windows. The bow tie is black and the calipers red.

Here is my dilemma. I was set for black chrome but I'm not completely sold on black chrome on the white. Gloss black with a high gloss clear always looks good on a white truck.

Anyone have opinions of the two? I have even considered a very dark bronze as I think it looks good on white. Opinions on that?

I like polished stockers on white but I also like glitter in my powder coatings so you can't really trust my opinion..

I'm not surprised to hear this at all...

I do agree with polished/chrome on white. Gloss Black. Not Black Chrome.

For those that have powder coated in the past, is it possible to polish the aluminum and put only a clear powder coat over it?

Talk to a few different powder coaters in your area about what your doing.

In my experience with getting bids for anything I usually get at least 4 different quotes....

One guy will blow you off and you'll never hear from him again, one guy will try and charge double what everyone else does... and you pick from the remaining reasonable offers
