Unless its for a part that gets abused and you need to touch it up all the time, then I think spray paint is better because it's EASY to touch up instead of powder coating :)

Bling bling!!

Spray cans also cost like 3$ and you can do it in your own garage and it will look plenty good for a long time...unless you beat up your valve cover alot.
