I am paying $100. For the first panel, they bought the color I wanted (light grey) which set them back $325, so they are counting on me doing a few.

Just a follow-up on powder coating the flap handle on a 12: It came out great, no mess on the handle, and it didn't remove all the grease from the bearing. Can't say how much, because I didn't really pay attention before. Doesn't appear to hove done any harm, but be sure to plug the handle end as saming that stuff out would be a problem.

Default Powder

I had my baffles powder coated and am very happy with the result. Local shop did the coating for minimum charge and there were a ton of pieces. I think it was around 200 dollars...
