Can saberforge powder coat a weathered hilt? So if I were to order a weathered hilt finish and pay for translucent blue powder coat to be applied can that be done? Does anyone have any pictures of doing this or something similar?

Hmm... that may need to be done through the Customs Shop, since the powder coat options on the store listings are either a full-coverage matte finish or for the transparent/translucent they're applied over a Dual Tone finish.

Yes. All of SFs powdered finishes be it pre-built sabers or ASP go through Customs.

Yes, however it's suggested you further your enquiry direct with Customs as the resulting appearance may vary to what is perceived. The trans colour sought and applied on a darkened surface say of the solid or partially worn black anodise influences the coloured powder coverage and how rich the resulting colour will be.
Does anyone have any pictures of doing this or something similar?
Nope, sorry.

EDIT: following image is Trans Red over (V2) weathered finish..
