Powder coating brushed aluminum?

Anyone here had any brushed aluminum cleared with powder coating?
I took a test piece to a local anodizing shop last week to see how that would look and didn't like it. The anodizing completely changed the look so I thought I would try powder coating but I'm not sure they can coat them without orange peel texture I have seen in some of the parts done at local shops.

I don't know why you couldn't. The powder should flow out for a level surface. I'd give either Eastwood or Caswell Plating a call and talk to one of their tech guys.
