If you have a good quality powder coat you can flex panels somewhat without cracking. You cannot make a 90 degree bend, it will crack. I have metal powder coated rods that I have bent that have not cracked. I would coat the panels close to the shape you need to minimize the possibility of cracking.

Interior Panels


I guess I just dislike the interior color - it reminds me of fake grasscloth wallpaper used in the seventies. I wish I had a partner to work on the home with me because I wouldn't even try to remove the interior myself - I just don't have the knowledge or the garage. I'll just try to decorate around it. Maybe I could focus on a new couch to distract the eye. By the way, my end caps are plastic and in great shape - little color change.

I used to do powdercoating, I would think that it would cost more to prep. it then actualy doing the work. It's gotta be CLEAN or it won't work. You won't have a prob. with the cracking and we all know it'll last. You could even go with a transparent matalic that would look awsome but what a job to do it.
Kinda WAY over kill.
Best of luck either way
