Default Powder coating my Ion frame

I have decided I'm going to have the stock frame powder coated to better match my stage 5. It's getting faded - Dusted red/black to match it. The body's anno scheme is Dusted Black front faded to Dusted Red back. Should I PC the frame in the same manner or reverse the colors (Frame-Red front to Black back)?

here are pics to help visualize it.....

hmmmm...i'd probably reverse it... but that's just me
too much red in one area just looks bad 2 me.
scattered about makes it look all pretty n' such
red front, black rear.

I would go the same as the body. I think it would flow better..

Why not get it annoed? I think it would last a little longer than being powder coating.. You can get matte finish annodizing also..

Anno single parts at PrecisionPB.com = $7.50, probably a little more for a fade.

Anno > Powdercoat

Edit: Its actually gonna be like $20. Medium sized parts are $16 for a single color, so I'd estimate $20 for a fade. Rick does awesome work and is a great guy. Get a quote from him before you decide Powdercoat is cheaper. Anno will always be better and look better, so if it costs a few more dollars, spend it.

Would a body be considered a large part?
