Powder coated inside or paint? I'm curious how well the mechanics move after powder coating as I am considering doing my this way.

Bottle stack shelves, bottle gates and shelves were powder coated. Any parts with close moving tolerances will get zinc plated such as parts of the vend system along the interior left side of the complete bottle stack.
