Powder coating/baked enamel/anodizing interior skins

I am fabricating new skins. Already did my end caps. I know most folks use stunningly white white walls or an aluminum interior, but I want "blush" walls (kind of a nude slightly pink/peachy color). I know that priming and painting aluminum is a pain in the butt, and really requires auto body paint. Trying to avoid this process and save time.

My question is this: Has anyone ever used anodized aluminum for their interior skins or end caps and NOT gone with an aluminum color, or powder coated aluminum or used a baked enamel aluminum in lieu of trying to etch prime and paint aluminum after installation?

If so, how did you make the rivets you used to install the interior skins "disappear" if the aluminum was pre-treated and you cant paint it all afterwards to make it look uniform?

I can do a custom color matching in blush for the panels and install them and boom - its finished - or i can do a champagne brushed aluminum (2nd choice) which would be lovely - but when I install the panels there will be aluminum rivet lines everywhere down every seam. Thoughts?
