Cerakote vs Powdercoat

Hi all. I have Poison Spyder BFH w/ Brawler bar and Rocker Knockers w/ sliders for my LJ sitting in my house. I was going to have them powder coated black but also thought about just spraying them with a rattle can. I just don't want to be sick because I put a huge gash in my powder coat, especially with the price I received. With spray paint, I know I can just re-spray the area if I mess it up. When I mentioned powder coating vs rattle-can to a buddy of mine, he suggested contacting a friend of his that does cerakoting. Has anybody gotten any parts cerakoted? Or does anybody have any advise for or against it?

Prices I've received so far:
Powder coating bumper and knockers: $250
Cerakoting bumper: $150; (have to verify the knockers will fit in the oven)

Thanks in advance.

I don't see how scratching ceramic coating will be any less painful to you than scratching powder coat. Its for heat resistance. I wouldn't expect it to be any more scratch resistant than powder.

Ok, so that was what I was trying to ask, but didn't make it clear. So a ceramic coating is no more scratch resistant than powder coating?

Can't say I have seen Cerakote used on anything but guns. Really surprised at the quoted price of $150, normal cost just to do a 1911 frame and slide is around $200!
