I do think they could have made the paint more durable though. I wonder how much more they'd cost if the parts were powder-coated instead of painted? That would last a long time.
--- Are they not already powder coated? I paint for a living (hvlp paint and powder coating), and i highly doubt they are using a 1 stage enamel paint or a 2 stage basecoat/clear coat application.
Are you 100% sure they aren't powder coated already? Or was your question/statement just speculation?
