Default Painted Galvaneal

I had recently completed a project that required to be painted to match a metal roof color. I used Galvaneal steel and painted the metal with a 2 part urethane paint.

The paint spayed on well and it looked good. I have painted some test panels and placed them on the roof to see how well the industrial urethane will hold up through the years. I am sure an epoxy paint would work well too.

Has anyone tryed powder coating galvaneal? Can you get a color specialy tinted to match an existing product?
