Diff. cover paint question

I have a 7.5 diff. cover. I took it to work and cleaned it. I'm going to have it powder coated. Should I spray paint the inside or leave it like it is. Or should I just have it powder coated also?

My main concern would be paint shipping off on the inside.

I had just got home from work and was still dirty.

Had I been clean you may have seen a sleeve. Although it is 70 degrees here today

I'd leave it bare, no one will see it and you won't have to worry about anything flaking or chipping off inside.
