    I copied and pasted this from the "show off your powder coated games thread...someone in that thread asked about auto paint...
    I don't have any of my games powder coated. I have done all mine with automotive paint and clear. I have had them all to several shows and they hold up fine. There is some chipping from folks with rings and just general travel dings, but I have extra paint for touch ups and it's not hard to touch up. But then I also have an AC/DC here with the original red powder coating that has some dings in it and it has not been to any shows. So with either there is the possibility for chipping...

    (I guess the pics didn't copy & paste...it is post #160 from the other thread)
    I actually did all the trim...Shooter housing, hinges, apron, even the speaker panels. The auto paint shop I get my paint from gave me a color book, with every car color in there. So I can pick from any of them, or if I have something specific, I take him a sample color, and he makes it for me ie. the purple on MET is a mixed color, he named it Metallica pinball purple. So if I need more, I just take the code back to him and he will mix me more. The detail stuff is a bit more difficult with the auto paint, cause it is harder to deal with when painting with a brush but I dealt with it and made it work and in the end I am happy with my results.
