Hey all.

Just throwing a few ideas around and wondering what would be better for a steel tray for a ute, powder coating or spray painting?

Powder coat for sure.

Paint looks better but you can't use it without scratching it....
powder coat still scratches but no way near as much as paint.

Haha, funnily enough I'd probably suggest just 2pac, but I guess are you talking about something that your gonna beat the s**t out of, or show car, or just average ute.

My boss said, cheaper to just get it blasted, spray it quickly and be done with it repeat in a couple years, powder coats much stronger but no way bullet proof, and will cost a fair bit to get done, and you will have to get a coater with a big enough setup. etc.

Well i want to put some alloy tool boxes on it and use it a lil for work, and want it to look good. Wont be carrying loads on it all the time and if i do i'd prob put a rubber mat down. Been quoted $1k to get it blasted and sprayed in black at the panel beaters (flat tray, with no sides), will have to get some prices on powder coating.
