I went crazy and powder coated / gold plated everything. If anyone is interested, it costs about $150 to powder coat an entire machine locally. There are several powder coat shops in almost all local areas. The gold plating is more money. I use Mike Chestnut. It's probably about $500 a machine but his work is fantastic.
Here are some pictures:
The LOTR is actually powder coated in this one. Still looks shiny gold:
