Has anybody tried to recondition any of the grill parts or body housings using powder coat painting methods?

Imatt,
Most of us don't have access to powder coating, but it is a more durable process than paint. The black non-stainless grills are powder coated at the factory on the outside & aluminumized on the inside. I would not suggest any kind of powder coating or paint on the inside surfaces, but it works good on the outside.

Hey thanks. But I still have a problem with the paint flaking off inside. Should I do anything with it?

Imatt,
Thats not paint. It's just black grease build-up from the oils in the smoke that ciculates inside. On the inside of the lid, get your putty knife under the grease layer & peel it off. I do this at the same time I am cleaning the drip pan. It is part of the seasoning process, just don't let it get so thick that it starts to peel off & drop down on your food. The inside of the lid surface is aluminum coated, not painted.
