Jeep Paint Colors Versus Powder Coat Colors

Updated: Feb 4

Since we started making custom jeep door handles it has been extremely difficult to find reliable information about powder coat colors that match or are very close to the jeep paint colors. We would usually just find a random list on the internet or we would find discussion thread with some color someone was going to try but rarely a decent photo of the final result. So we decided that when we found close matches we would post photos with the sample against the paint so that customers could the best information possible to make a decision.


Just a little bit of information we have learned through the years, powder coat and paint are very different. They are different in both how they are made and applied as well as how they look after the process and how they weather with time. Even if you find a powder coat sample that exactly matches a paint color, a powder coat color can vary from batch to batch as well as due to the thickness when sprayed and the temperature at which it is cured. So if you need an exact match for color then paint is really the only way to get a reliable match.


Although, if durability and ability to sandwich pieces together are more important to you then powder coat can be the best option. (When two painted pieces are forced together the paint can weld and be damaged if you try to separate the parts, which does not happen with powder coat.)
