    Beware local Powder Coating Company SD

    Hey everyone, just wanted to put this out there so no one makes the same mistake I did. I pulled off my tube bumper to have it powder coated at a local company in San Diego called A to Z metal Finishing. The guy running the place seemed really cool and laid back and was a fellow 4 wheeler, he told me he would charge me 150 to do the bumper and he even had it done the following day, so I paid him cash. sadly one day after having the bumper back it started flaking and peeling. Turns out he was trying to make a little more money and didn't strip the bumper and prep it correctly. When I took it back to him, he tried putting in on me saying I damaged it, but he eventually took it back. Its been 4 weeks and my bumper is no where to be found, they keep ducking my calls and last I heard from them they shipped my bumper off to another company in vista for "prep" when I contacted that company they said "it may be somewhere in their warehouse, we will call you back" This has turned into a nightmare since at this point I don't even know where my bumper is. That being said beware.

    If I were you I would mention the word lawyer to both those companies and I bet your bumper shows up quick and done.

    well a quick update, I tracked down my bumper its at a warehouse in vista, and from what they said they don't touch anything that A to Z ships them, they just lend them their facility. So the good news the bumper is found, at a shop that it doesn't belong, however it isn't powder coated, or even stripped for that matter. I'm thinking I should just cut my losses pick up my bumper from the other company and try to find a good reliable coater somewhere else. My only mistake was paying in cash so I really have no paper trail so I'm out a bit of cash.

    I don't know crap about the law but I'm guessing this is a small claims type of case. I don't think a lawyer would help. They would charge more than the cost of the bumper.

    Just saying.

    Sorry for the headache and thanks for warning us.

    poker is right, it is a small claims case, I have a witness, but he has a shop full of employees. So it comes down to my word against his. I just wanted to put it out there so no one else gets screwed over.

    Ask for your money back and bring it to Powder One in el cajon. I just got some work done by them and they are great. They charge a little more but it's worth it. they sand blast everything in house.
