Just bought a second hand steel winch bar, straight but in need of some TLC. It’s a TJM T13. Will be getting it sandblasted but then what? Paint or powdercoat? What is on the new bars of today? Paint tends to peel after a while, but powdercoat chips…..
Anybody got ideas on cost of the sandblast and powdercoat option?
Any recommendations in Western Sydney for the job?
Will be selling the alloy bar as soon as I’ve finished this project if anyone is after one…
Thanks in advance
Cheers

Some powdercoaters have their own stripping bath and this is probably the cheapest option. If you look in the Trading Post theirs a guy at Smithfield who does bullbar repairs, he could probably suggest a powdercoater. If your using a solid colour powdercoat better than paint but the silver can be a bit brittle and chip in which case I’d go for wet painting.

I had mine powder coated mine and it was also finished with 2 coats of laquar. It has had many stone hits, but no chips. Cost me $170.

I would agree, and the finish looks better, and lasts longer.
