Powder coating

Can anyone recommend a place in the Detroit / Ann Arbor area for powder or ceramic coating valve covers?

In case anyone is interested I used Michigan Sandblasting on Inkster Road in Redford. Turns out the color I picked which starts with a chrome basecoat doesn't work well at all on magnesium because of the outgassing, so they used a different basecoat which slightly altered the shade but helped limit the outgassing issue. I'm not planning on entering the car in any prize shows so some shade of blue that looks clean and won't peel in 2 years is all I wanted. They were extremely apologetic about the couple of bubbles - they stripped and painted them 3 times though trying to get it absolutely perfect.
So got one installed so far in our freezing garage.
