Can I powder coat (black) a chrome bumper?
 
Hi,

Just purchased a 2009 Ram 1500 SLT and would like to get the chrome bumpers powder coated in black. Can that be done?

If not, anyone interested in swapping ...chrome for black? Mine does not have no fog lights inserts.

Thanks,
John

powder coaters will sandblast your bumper & shoot it any color that you wish, any finish that you decide, flat or gloss, if you wanted it to look like it has flakes in it, they do that too ( sort of like candy apple )
my Harley gas tanks are gloss black with flakes that are blue, green, purple, etc & it was applied on by powder coating

Yup, you can get it powdercoated, they will media-blast it before they coat it.

They will media blast or, in some cases if they have a source and you want them to do it, strip the chrome off of the bumper before they prep and powdercoat.

Ya like everyone said it can be done! you should really check into someone wanting to do a straight across trade though! There is a lot of people that like the chrome that want while there are those...like you...look for body matched parts,it could save lots of money and effort! :smileup:

Swapping sounds like a much better option. I can't post anything under "sell and trade" yet so is there any other section you would recommend? Do you know when I'm allowed to post? Or can you do me a favor and post a link to this thread under selling and trade and give it a "swapping chrome for black bumpers, 09 Ram 1500 SLT 4x4" title. I can post pictures here.:smileup:

Either way....thanx!

Just keep posting, donjuandr. Once you hit Senior Member status (75 posts) you can post up a new FS or WTB or Trade thread in that section.

you should find out how much they will have to charge you In most cases a paintable or aftermarket bumper cost less.

Ya just powdercoat it. You have to take it off either way, and it should be cheap. I had mine done for $45(each)

another option is to have it sprayed with Line_X XTRA
