the clear coat uv has a bit of green color to it though. powder coat does come is a lot of colors though

you cant powder coat glass, you need electrical charges on the base and the powder, cant put a charge on glass, not mention that i dont think it would even stick to glass

the only thing i would wonder about is if the warm spots up by the top of the stem will give any issues when heated, i know powdercoat is pretty safe with heat and pretty high temp depending on the type so it should not be an issue but something to look at (MSDS should give you the info you need for this)

cool idea i might be interested, i want to know how/if you could do a full coating to prevent any rust. if so you could make a "cheap" rig that smoked well but had bad materials in to a great rig
