Default powder coating or anodizing amp?

I was thinking of taking the board out of my amps and having a local company either anodize or powder coat them. Anyone do this before?

I don't want to make it seem harder than it is or more dangerous than it is but if you mess up, it could cost you the amplifier. You could crack the board, break gains, inputs, outputs, power connections and or short circuit paths.

other than that, it's simple rocket surgery.

Make sure you get acetone to remove any grease and junk from the amps the cleaner the amps the better the powder coat

I've taken around 150 amps apart and put them back together... and I've had two amplifiers down for the last 10 years because the potentiometers which broke when taking them apart are not available for purchase. {10mm dual b20k}[smaller than normal = nearly impossible to find]

2 out of 150 is pretty good odds right?
