    Posted: 18 Sep. 2011 at 8:04pm

I bought trailer # 10466 a couple months ago and I'm in the process of going through it to make it road worthy. I have the spring packs apart and trying to decide to paint or powder coat them. I’m going to powder coat the axle, hubs, spring hangers and maybe the tongue components.

Any negative side effects from powder coating the springs?

Thanks

Ken

I'd go with paint, powder coat is quite hard and will probably crack when the springs flex.
