yeah, but you can easily powdercoat it at home, if you have a large enough oven for it, a friend and I powdercoated a few things, made a couple large ovens, one with 2x, fiberglass, and old electric oven elements and controls, worked out very nice and the best part was that it was all easy to break down and store away.

the second was made with the shell of an old electric dryer, just pulled everything out of it, drum, motor, bottom etc, just leaving the heating coil in place, then wrapped with fiberglass, temp control was manual by opening the door a bit or shutting down the heat loaded it by picking it up and setting it over the parts.
