I had the aluminum skid plate and heal guards on my quad powdercoated. It was a bit pricey, but it was durable as hell. Like the other guy said, only on the skidplate where I bashed it on rocks did it scratch through. I guess you get what you pay for. I would definitely send them my items again.

Most of those items you mentioned along with hot water heaters, are "painted" by spraying them with porcelin, which is then baked on, kind of the same way they do toilet bowls. If you ever hit any of those hard enough the paint will fly off in chunks & if you ever try to scratch one intentionally it is super hard to do. Not impossible but difficult and once you do scratch it you usually end up with paint flaking off which makes it very hard to repair. That is why it is not recommended that you spray paint any of them to re-finish.
