    Is it easy as scuffing the surface with some sand paper and spray away?

    Just sand the chip down and spray away. Be warned that the rattle can fades so much faster than powder coat it isn't even funny. (like weeks vs years)

    er, i misread the post. personally, i prefer a spray bomb over powder coat, for the reason i mentioned above. if you're patching a chip in powder, make sure to feather the edges out pretty good. you'll have better luck with the rest of the powder staying in place if you do.
