I think you would be better off powder coating them. Powder coating will last longer and resist chipping or cracking better than painting. I am not sure who the go-to powder coater is in Chicago, but you might try seaching various forums, as I am sure there is a thread about it somewhere. Or just give the guys at Fall-Line, IND or any of the other shops around a call and they can point you in the right direction.

True, but I have read the powercoating horror stories.
