Chassis Saver vs Powder Coat on frame?

Trying to decide on Chassis Saver or Powder Coat on my 37 Roadmaster frame.
Would love to hear pros and cons of each.
Thanks.

If you have the funds to get your frame powder coated....get it powder coated...you'll have a much better finish and more durable than Chassis Saver.

If you do a search here, you will find several discussions paint vs PC. Most of the detractors say "if you miss welding a bracket on, you wont be able to touch it up" Duh!! Do it right before you PC

I have it on my '31 and since I built it 'right' never had that problem. My only advice to anyone PC'ing a frame - black is easy to touch up if you do screw up and do gouge it - but in 4 years driving mine is still pristine.

I went with powder coating - good looking durable finish. If I did have to weld something on, I'd clean that part of the PC off, then paint just that part. Overall it would still look better. Mine's gloss black.
