Has anyone ever powdercoated pedals?

Has anyone ever tried to powdercoat a pedal body. I want a set of road pedals that are all black, but the only one I can come up with are junk. I want a slight step up from junk so I was thinking of getting a set of MKS sylvan pedals with the black cages and having the bodies powder coated. I think it would work in theory. Opinions?

never done it, but sure it should work...only problems are if the bodies are riveted to the cages you'll be better off to leave them and powdercoat everything (after removing the guts of course). And they are small,so it's usually not economical to pay for small articles at a commercial PCer, better to get a lot of small things together that all get the same color, or find somebody with a "home PC" set up, they are perfect to use on small fry.

Get an old set of superbe pedals and you can remove the cages spindle and bearing assemblies and then powder coat. in fact I have a set with NOS black cages for sale and am thinking of doing a bulk order of brand new cartridge bearings for them. PM me if you are interested. Also keep mind the surface has to be prepped so you would have to sand them or have them plasted. Not worth the cost in my opinion. I would just settle for black cages.
