I do and I will upload them as soon as I can for you. My truck is a 2008 xlt, I had the 17 inch wheels and bought 2008 FX4 wheels to powder coat 20% semi gloss black.

Nice to see a set of wheels that aren't boogered up with plasti-dip. They look great!

Everyone that wants to do this with theirs is going to hate my reply... a little background, I work at a machine shop and my neighbor "the powder coater" works right down the street from my work and his company does all of our companies coating work, anodize, powder coat, paint, anything. I also snow blow my neighbors drive way and he did my wife's fusion rims and mine for free. He did not want payment so I offered to do the driveway for free. About two years ago when I bought the rims I had a separate company quote the work and they said 300 for the set. I told my neighbor that and he laughed and said everyone's always trying to rob everyone, so that 300 made me think that was high when at the time I thought that was reasonable because I did not know any better. He blasted them and powder coated the rims with a 20% semi-gloss UV protected black, tapped, cleaned, primed, and painted the center caps to match.

I want the bumpers black to and I told him that I wanted to do that hoping that he would bite and say take them off and I will do those to but he did not. lol. Maybe a 30 pack will spark his interest...

Rather than a 30-pack, try this approach:

remind him how great the wheels look, then ask him

"can you give me an estimate on how much the bumpers will cost?"

this will put the ball in his court to start the barter process...

That's cool you have a neighbor that can do it! I too believe $300 is decent.
I just called a paint guy and to have them painted is $500! He said powder coating is more and he sends them to another shop and they would charge $900!!! That's just freaking nuts. Might as well buy new rims for that price!
