powdercoating the hubs is not a good idea. aluminum starts loosing strength after about 350 degrees (assuming it is pure 6061-T6 machined) so you will compromise the integrity. additionally, the hubs are cast, so there is no way to accurately gauge how much strength was lost.

anodize or polish only for the hubs.
