Rock Rash on Metalcloak Black Powercoat Bumper End Cap fixing Black Powdercoat
Q: What does MetalCloak recommend for covering up scratched powdercoat?

A: Rustoleum Black Textured Paint... details below.

So, you bought MetalCloak Rock-Biting Body Armor for your Jeep and now you have the best Tube Fender, Rockers, Corner Guards and Bumpers available on your rig.

But it is Body Armor, which means that when you wheel, you are going to innevitably bang it up, On the Rocks!

And even though we use an incredible Premium Black Textured Powdercoat that is easily 5 mil or more in thickness, rocks can still tear through it and expose bear metal.

The question is, what is the best way to repair and clean up this mess?

Some time ago, while having fun at Area BFE during the 2010 Easter Jeep Safari, I tore up the Crawler Cap on my Frame-Built Bumper.

Fortunately, this is VERY easy to repair using Rustoleum's Black Texured Spray Paint.

First... buy a can of Rustoleum Black Textured Paint. Rustoleum has a great line of textured paints and the Black Textured matches our powder coat incredibly well.

Next clean up the area around the scratched powder coat with a mild sandpaper or a scotch brite pad.

Then, following Rustoleum's instructions, rattle can that baby (of course, you should mask off the area you don't want sprayed black...).

The result is a "barely can tell" finish, ready to get thrown back at the rocks.
