Has anyone tried one of the DIY powder coating kits?

Seems pretty simple to do, just want to find out which kits are better than others.

I have only used the one i bought out of the Eastwood Car tool catalog. Its neat.
It works well for small parts. I've done motorcycle parts, car parts, gun parts. Their are all kind of colors and finishes available. The biggest thing i've done is the valve cover for my car.
It makes bad fumes when you cook it, typically 400 degrees for 20 minutes, so don't use your regular stove. I use a small toaster oven i got at the Salvation Army for 5 bucks.

A couple of less fun things are that one needs a compressor to make it work. And set up and break down of the system is kind of involved, so i like to do as many parts at a time as i can. Also, do it outside 'cuz you get powder over spray.
