My System Specs

Default Powder coating job

Hi everyone!


Since custom painting a case would cost me 3 legs and 4 arms I would like to know if you have any ideas of how it could cost me to have it powder coated?

The case would need no special prep since it would be factory primed and already disassembled.


Thanks in advance for your helpful infos!

Powder Coating will always cost more WAY more than painting.

I dunno bout that, i professional custom paint job can run you upwards of $1000 and even my expensive powder coating company was going to charge me $300 for an S3 and pedestal.

I know daz hinted at about a $1000 for the paint job he got done from hanover on his S3

Totally depends on the finish your looking for... can get a car painted reasonably well for $1000

At that price I'd look into doing it yourself (or if you have an artistic friend)... see if you can get a finnish your happy with.. if not, strip it down and try again. :)

Depends on your local powdercoater. A full case should be around $200, depending on color. I've had the guts of a Cosmo and TJ-07 done, both times was around $60.
