has anyone ever powdercoated the hood hinges? If so, did the powdercoat hold up?

I wondered from the constant friction movement of the hinges, if the powdercoat would wear off?

The less things I have to paint, the better off I am .... I hate painting every few years, as stuff starts to fade.

you can powder every thing but the springs they will crack over time and the coating will come off

I have a set of "chrome" powder coated hinges on my '74. I bought them off eBay last year so I can't speak for long term, but they look really nice currently. No issues with rub through or rust (yet?) happy bowtie

When I bought them they were sold as bright chrome powder coat, the look of chrome without the maintence. To be honest they look more like aluminum or chrome paint than a actual plated part .
