Just a word of caution if you do get it powder coated. The coating is 
inclined to flake at the bolt holes if you get any build up there, 
which leaves a raw edge for moisture to creep into the interface of 
the coating and the metal. Probably not a big deal, but if it were me 
I'd just be looking for a really heavy zinc plating (hot dip would be 
the best, not electroplated) and skip the powder coating.
