Thinking about having my World Cup Soccer side rails/lock bar/legs powdercoated candy purple to match the color of the goalie on the side..

Just wondering if the dents in my rails can be fixed (CHEAPLY--i realize I can buy a new set for not a ton of money) prior to powder and end up looking good after.

Thoughts?

Since you are going through the trouble of removing the side rails and then having them powder coated I assume that you want them to look perfect. While it is likely possible for someone to work out the dents in your side rails they still will likely not be perfect and you will always notice the imperfections.

Get new side rails as they do not cost that much as you noted and your new powder coated side rails will then look perfect.

Thanks guys. I suspected as much, but wanted to confirm. Raw is even cheaper than I thought.. Didn't know that was an option.
