The hammered paint looks great, just be sure to let it dry 2-3 weeks before building out the kit.

For powder coating, any powder coating shop around you likely runs black several times per week and would throw your panel in inexpensively.  I suggest bringing cash and saying you don't need any paperwork.

I took my chassis plates and bell covers to a motorcycle repair shop and they powder coated in any color I wanted. They even stripped the coating off and did it again when I realized I didn’t like the way one looked.

Thanks Paul!  Good advice on the trying time.  And the 'off the book' work ;)

oguinn - how much did that run you?  I worry they are not going to want to do any work under $50 or the like.

I had them do four or five over a couple years and got to know the shop owner. I want to say it was about $50 per, but that was with a candy finish that took two coats.
