Refurbishing Stove Top & Cover

I mentioned in another thread here that I was planning to have the stove top and cover from my '90 Excella ceramic coated. I brought it in today and the ceramic coater advised me that they had had problems in the past applying ceramic coating to the type of metal used in may RVs. He recommended powder coating as a better alternative.

I have had a lot of powder coating done over the years as part of restoring vintage Porsches and I deal with a shop that I hold in high regard. I checked with them and they advised that the stove top required a high temperature powder coating and they had one that would handle up to 800 degrees. It was available in only one color, black, which worked fine for my wife.

The bifold stove cover doesn't need to be as hardy and I chose powder coating that will handle up to 200 degrees. That gave a wide variety of choices and we settled on Airstream blue.

Should be functional and look nice as we start to spiff up the interior a bit. Thought it might be useful to others who are considering ceramic coating these components to mention what I discovered.

How did the powder coating turn out?
Our stove top grate coating is worn off and looking shabby. is powder coating cheaper than replacing the grate?
