Anyone know about these bumpers that come in raw steel? Can I just spray it with rhino liner or a matte paint? I plan on getting real use out of it so it being pretty isn't important. I just don't want it rusting.

They are quick to respond on IG. Just send them a screenshot of your cart and they will message you back a coupon code.

I always use Rustoleum Hammered as you can buy it in the can and just brush it on. Has a textured finish to hide flaws and is easy to touch up. I put it on all the buggies I build.

Correct me if im wrong but the c4 bumper only needs a power steering line mod if your planning on running a winch in the bumper.

Oh really?? Thanks for this. I will reach out to them and ask. I read their description, and found a post on a forum. Perhaps I misinterpreted it. Thanks for the heads up!

How does the paint hold up? Iíve been considering whether to order my sliders powdercoated or bare metal and Iíve been reading that theyíre really easy to touch up with paint if you go that route. One of the concerns I have though is that if you use the slider as a step occasionally, the paint may just start to flake in some places and thatís just a crappy look. Iíd be painting the things every two weeks.

If the paint is really durable and only going to come off if I scrape the heck out of them on a rock, then I might go that round instead

When you first paint them, it can chip. But it blends so easily you really won't notice where. Once it gets hardened it holds up great. I don't have good pics of the rock rails on my buggies after a competition, but it will only be missing where the rocker was gouged. Simply touch it up with rattle can or a brush and its blends back in. For steps I would like some form of non skid added to it, as they can get pretty slick if only stepping on just a tube. If you do an upside down dimple die or something with traction it's better. I don't think a non textured powder coat would be any different.

I can't tell you how many powder coated bumpers I've seen end up chipping and starting to bumble from rust. There's no way to touch up without sand blasting and repowder. With this you can touch up whenever easily. I can't say I've ever had any just run off any chassis ever. Once it gets hardened it only comes off where you gouged it from a rock. Also it will paint right over rust, so no need for extravagant prep work. I'd say it'll paint over most anything aside from water puddles.

Those are some insightful details.. about powdercoating vs. the Hammered method. Thanks for all the help. I actually feel really comfortable now about getting it in raw metal!
