    Best paint for hard wearing parts

    I've got a couple of new recovery points in the mail but they are yellow, i want to make them white.

    What is the best sort of paint considering they are under the car and will probably hit the ground every now and then and cop a lot of sand ..etc

    Should i just bite the bullet and get the local guy to powercoat them for $50?

    Definitely powder coat.

    Paint them white.

    paint them white when they get scuffed. then paint them white again later?

    Apparently this paint stuff: Valspar product called TB543, is tougher than most powder coats.

    But I read that on the internet.

    This. When your powdercoat peels or whatever and you complain the coater will tell you
    that powdercoat is an architectural coating not an industrial coating.

    I'm with Cracka. Can of enamal and recoat as required. I have cans of satin black that i go over the patrol with after a wash. Redo all the scuffs on the bars, sliders, flares etc. Don't worry about surface prep because it happens so often.

    EDP White then powdercoat white over the top.

    Some of those that work forces are the same that burn crosses.

    we've had some stuff done in plascoat, which is a thermoplastic. Feels great on the surface and seems pretty robust so far.
