I know a guy that did it a couple months ago and said he didn't think it would be that much work.He only did the lower.He charged the guy $300 just for doing it and said it wasn't enough but it looked good.

Once the powdercoat gets a chip it will get water under it and start peeling off and bubbling. I would just paint it.
