I might end up going with the dixon bros one just because ive been trying to get a hold of woolworth and i havent got a response yet. the only bad thing is that the nearest place that does powdercoating is 7 hours away so id have to keep it gray instead of black like i would like it

Don't bother with woolworth, they have a bad rep. Talk to dixon and see if they can powder coat it a different color.

I talked to dixon about powdercoating and they said they can he just doesnt like to because he cant guarantee its going to show up on my doorstep in the same condition it left them so i might just have to hope that any damage is minimal
