Powder Coating Brake Calipers

I'm trying to powder coat my brake calipers. I will be doing this in my garage and already have equipment and everything. Also, I will be rebuilding the brakes with oem rebuild kit. I've seen some painted calipers on here but they look like crap; bumpy surface, ricer look, etc. Has anyone done this? Anything I should be aware about? Anything like metal expanding during the heat process where the piston are?

Does stock calipers have any kind of coating on them?

I will be def. sand blasting them and using the proper chemicals to remove all the residue from the surface of the brake calipers.

Any info will greatly be appreciated.
