Powder coating parted the paint and metal underneath

I didn't powder coat mine since there is nowhere close but I did spray paint them with an enamel when I had the forks apart about a year and half ago. Mine where stone chip etc. I went with flat aluminum paint. Cause it closely match the paint and metal underneath. Gave it a top coat of Matt clear to finish. Hasn't chipped or come off in anyway... Yet.
Pic was taken just before reassembly.

I had a customer with a K75 BMW, they were pretty faded and beat up, sent them to:

they did a matt black and looked better than new. QC does a detailed job taping so the paint doesn't go where it shouldn't, they do our race bike wheels as well.
Sorry no pics.

I had my forks coated with DLC by Thermosman it helps them work really, really well.
