Just saw your post. I don't have the Kentrol hinges, but I think I might try them out. I like the fact that the Kentrol hinges are heavy stainless steel. I like the fact that they are slightly over sized, to cover up the paint line from the old hinges. I don't like the fact that instead of the Torx head bottom screw, Kentrol uses a small nut. Also, my Jeep is black, and I don't know how the black hinges will look with the factory paint. I definitely don't like the look of the polished hinges. I'm not happy to hear that they scratch easily. Powdercoat should be very think and durable.
