A Suitable Candidate for Treatment...(ie Powdercoating)?

I've never done more than modest touchup on frame scratches, but this Stumpjumper Sport frame is a bit rougher than I've had, esp on the chainstay. (The inside is very clean however.)

I've got a place in mind for PC that has a good rep for doing frames; cost is $100 for a basic RAL color, which is all I'd want. Probably I'll go with an orange that's close to the original, might even get repop decals.

But just for kicks I thought I'd kick it out here: would you PC or touch up and ride?

(If anyone gets the movie reference in the thread title I'll be impressed.)
