500.00 because my paint is metallic flake and the powder coating is two step coating because of this

Sounds like a very good price IMHO.
Had valve covers & chrome diff cover done by a shop back in 98 ($200). Went back last year to get my Procharger main/sub brackets, tb hat and one other piece done and they wanted $650 to start! After cleaning my shorts out I ended up buying a gun, bunch of powder and large convection/toaster oven and doing it myself. Any part that would fit Ive powdercoated. Like to do the big stuff but need to build a large oven first.

Funny how the price is all over the place. I had my timing chain cover, power steering pump pulley and a few odds and ends powder coated including clear coat for $180.00.

Wow I don't feel bad then. Sounds like I got a decent price it sounded good only reason I decided to actually do it in the first place.

Thats 650 Cdn btw, they bend us over up here big time on almost everything. Contemplating doing some pc work on the side to support my modification/power habit lol.
Any price you pay US for modifications, costs me generally 40-80% more. My last order from Summit was $888 but with shipping, tax, brokerage fees & $conversion was over $1400 to my door.
