That was back in 04 and it almost immediately hazed and cracked, they said it was condusive to the orange almost exclusively with a few exceptions. IMHO powdercoating in color has run its course, you will get tired of it sooner or later, but that's just me. I would do the DCB pewter color but that's about it. Polished S.S. is hard to beat. Good luck
PS Now I dont care obviously, look at my sig pix LOL
I have parts from Lightning, Hardin, Rex, Dana, IMCO, Eddie and some custom fabbed ones on my boat. Dana is the only one that offers my color. Dana's powdercoating prices were a little steep so I bought what I needed in either raw (unfinished) or polished and just took it all to a Powder Coating when I was re-rigging my boat. Embee performance does great work and has something like over 500 colors.
I understand its a little fusturating buy hey, its a custom boat right? Anything custom is going to be a pain in the ass! just deal with it, the reward it always worth it when its done.

So I was out on the boat today and I think I have decided to keep everything in the cockpit polished. I am afraid that the orange maybe too over the top and make things look a little trashy.... plus it saves me some money as I won't be needing gauge bezels.
So what's the story with polished - do I have to keep it polished? With the polished tilt helm and the chrome/platnuim Autometer gauges, a few more polished bits with compliment the interior of the boat.
How about the clear anodized - will it experience the same issues as the red anodized that I had on my other boat where the colored layer started flaking off - underneath looked like some galvanic corrosion although gell was under it and gauges where on top of it.
