Default Shop to powder coat small items

Yo!

I am looking for a shop to powder coat the mesh grill of my Amuse R1 front bumper. So far the shops I have called have a minimum that is a bit much for such a simple part, and I figured there must be a shop in the bay area willing to do small parts like this.

Maybe powder coating is overkill? I am just looking for something that will take a bit of a beating so I don't have to refinish it often, so I am also open to suggestions.

Thanks.

That is another option. Powder coating seems like the more durable option though.

Why not a rattle can solution if it's small?

Looking to avoid it chipping. Looking for the most durable option so I only have to do it once.

I would choose plastidip over rattle can paint, plastidip is actually a rubberized coating and it's flexible so it won't be prone to chipping. Touch-ups will be easy if needed and it's only $7.

BTW, powder coat isn't chip proof.
