    Given the expense of the other options, I'd go for satin black Rustoleum with a low'n'slow oven cure.

    I've dealt with powder coated automotive parts before. Be aware some places apply it *quite* thick; I've measured more than .030", which prevented proper parts assembly a couple of times. I'd vote in favor of power coat durability; it was a bugger to removed it from where it shouldn't have been applied...

    Yep, I have ruled powder coating out. I'll look at Cerakote as the best option now...

    Is it economically feasible for you to purchase the Cerakote to do the job yourself? Not sure what it would cost to import and pay import taxes versus paying someone else to do the job.

    I think both ways I am going to have to pay because I need to get the parts aluminum grit blasted, and I don't have access to a spray gun or an oven. I don't have the place to do this kind of work.
