Just in case someone else wants to try this, I thought I'd post some notes on having my phaser handle and trigger powder coated.
1) Don't powder coat the trigger! It won't fit back in the handles correctly. Had to strip the coating off. Would have looked cool in gloss red but just didn't work. So instead of a color I polished it to a mirror finish and I think I like this better
2) My phaser handle had apparently been re-painted at some point and there was a reaction with the powder during cure making a nasty mess. After stripping and sandblasting and reapplying the powder coat it turned out GREAT! I would recommend removing all of the existing paint/coating before powder coating.
3) Take before pictures "before" you finish so you can compare. I can only provide pictures of the "after" . I'll post them later
