I want to get a few parts(calipers/valve covers) Powder coated. Has anyone done this? If so what was the cost and how long did it take them to return the parts?

This is my DD so i can't drive it without the parts i want coated...

how would anyone on here know how busy your local powdercoater is? i would just call around. if you're on a local forum then check for a recommended powdercoater on there.

^^^Exactly.

I paid $70 to get my 4V valvecovers, front cover, and driverside coil bracket powdercoated. I dropped off the parts at his shop and picked them up a few days later.

since we are on the subject some what lets talk about chrome. I have heard there are different kinds i.e. (cheap). Can anyone shed some light on having your intake and valve covers chromed? There were some guys at a show talking about "his chrome on the intake was coming off..."

$70 isn't bad for all of that and a few days turn around isn't bad either. I'll have to give my local shop a call and see what's up
