    Default Looking at possibly getting a new vehicle de-chromed, and powder-coat the rims..

    As stated above, looking at ordering/buying a new vehicle but the black package that the USA has is not available in Canada, so looking at de-chroming (vinyl wrap I assume?) the door handles and some other trim, and possibly power-coating the wheels and maybe even the grill.

    Looking for a professional job.

    Anyone know anyone in Calgary that can do this kind of job? (all in one stop)

    AFAIK no wrapping company is going to be able to do powder coating in-house and vice versa. What you may be able to make work is parking the car on a small lift or jacks at the vinyl shop and then transporting the rims to the powder coating place yourself. Any good shop like Shadow Tinting or Ikon Tinting should be able to do the chrome delete. For powder coating I used a place that was on Blackfoot Trail by Autotemp or something I think and they were good. Can't think of their name right now.

    For professional powder coating, I can definitely recommend Powder Works. Just had a set of wheels completed there, and the final product is amazing. Will be difficult to choose the right 'black' though, as there are probably a hundred or so variations.

    Force auto styling could likely do all of it. The powder coat wouldn't be in-house but they would be able to do it as a one stop shop.

    Any good tint/wrapping place can facilitate the powder coating portion but they will charge you the premium/convience fee for handling it since as above, it won't be in house.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    Thanks all, after banging my head against the wall for quite a while, I was able to finally order a Black Edition that just last week was made available in Canada, so will all be done by factory.
