    I was talking about powder coating my rails and legs on Metalica to a friend (outside of pinball loop) and he said he would automotive paint with coating. His reasoning was that powder coating can chip. I never even considered this before. Anyone have knowledge of this subject and why I might want to or not want to use one method over the other?

    Quoted from 85vett:

    Auto paint with chip as well. Properly done PC is stronger and can take more abuse than Auto paint.
    I went with Auto paint on my BOP because I couldn't find the nice candy purple I was looking for in PC. If you can get the color you want in PC I would do that every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

    Your BOP is one of the most stellar machines I've laid eyes on BTW!!!

    Thanks Phoebe. I appreciate the time you put into your answer. It does appear that it is not a disaster to go either way. My big concern was it being just a terrible thing. I'm probably leaning towards powder coat but I'll keep an open mind and see what the local people will do either for me for.
