can plastic be powdercoated ?
I would think so, but not entirely sure. If not, I'll just drop it off with a body shop and have it painted flat black. I'd rather not have it plastidipped. Worked with that way too much, and not a big fan of using it on body panels.

plastic can't be powdercoated. They need to run a electrical current thru the piece being coated to create the proper adhesion and then they are baked in an oven at a temp that would leave your grill in a pile of liquid on the floor. Plastidip or painting are your only options

It is the chrome trim I'm talking about, and I suppose I'll just have it painted flat black at a body shop then haha
The 2017 is all black already

I've been talking about the chrome U underneath our grilles. Sorry, should've specified a few posts back I suppose
I don't mind mine as black and white paint compliment the chrome. All other colors should shun it.
