Rear sway bar - paint
« on: July 11, 2019, 11:07:01 AM »
Hi,

I want to sand and paint both sway bars as I'm also replacing all the bushings (going poly).  What paint do I need/use?

Thanks in advance.

you could powdercoat, hard wearing against chips and debris.

Agree, powder coat.

What did it cost you to have the bar powder coated?

Really hard to say as it depends entirely on the area you're in and how much competition they have!!

Put together a batch of items if you have several that could be done the same colour.
