Default Powder Coating worth 2x price?

I'm getting my 26's done in white.

I got a price for $300 for paint, and $600 for powder coating

They say the can't promise me the powder coating will match perfectly.

Is it worth it to spend twice as much for the powder coating.

problem with paint is it can chip much easier.

My powder coat guy has at least 3 sets of sample cards & more in his book type samples
they are similar to the ones that you see at the large paint supply stores

You take the samples out to the vehicle & do your own match
not only do they have solid colors, but they also have different textures, pearl coat & a few other options

My Harley gas tanks were done in Black Amethyst, it changes color as you walk around it
I didn't even do wet sanding on them to make the finish stand out even more

powder coat is much better than paint if done right by a pro. They can't gaurantee it'll match but if they do their best to get a match, you'll never tell the difference because it will be broken up by the wheel wells.

Here's a "match" a guy did on my buell. Factory coating on the frame/gas tank and aftermarket powder coat on the triple trees. Can't even tell they are different.
