OK i know that stainless colours under high heat and expands and contracts too much. But steel just rots too quick. What do you ppl suggest?

Mild steel with industrial strength chrome plating. Yeah, the stainless has a horrible amount of thermal expansion and will easily shear bolts. The mild steel will expand very little, it's cheap, easy to work with, and the chrome plating will keep it from rusting and rotting as well as giving the unmistakable mega bling factor.

Well, choming versus powdercoating are likely to be about the same price. But the chrome has the bling factor and the much much higher anti-corrosion properties that just a powdercoating wouldn't.

Jet-Hot is the she-it and they do offer coatings for the bling-ably challenged. They coat inside and out.
