Just an FYI

I used Brothers Powder Coating in New Port Richey and they did an awesome job for me and the coating held up. They were a little finicky to deal with but in hind sight they know their process and products and were trying to explain which color and materials are best. I respect that and the quality of their work speaks for itself. They also have a large oven so that's something to remember if your doing large items.

On another occasion I used All American Powder Coating in Lutz and it was a freaking nightmare! The cost was thru the roof and it did not hold up. Their coating was super thin and it wasn't 3 months and every piece they did for me looked like crap.


Brothers has the SWAMPHUNTER45 seal of approval!

Here you go:


They did my whole rigging and did a fine job.

They are about 15 miles from Lakeland located over in Winter Haven.

Pops Painting on Drain Field Road in Lakeland Can Do it, he has a huge powder coating booth, he can do all the metal work and a trailer at the same time, if you need all of it done ,and he does great work.
