Haven't had any issue with the frame it's been several years I did a hammer coat so even if that nicked up it's still look brand-new happy with it

As for masking they do have tape I don't see any reason to plug holes you can just drill or screen right through them

So - how long will PC last on a frame...or even a drybox for that matter?

My frame is not powder coated but I am a Glazier by trade and work with powder coated aluminum all the time. I will chime in a say that even though powder coated materials are more durable than paint it is not that hard to scratch it especially while putting a dry box into a bay on your frame. How long it holds up will mostly depend on how you treat it.
