powder coating and tolerance issues with a headtube

I am new to your program.I am designing a new head tube assembly to attach to my handcycle.I have finished drawing my design.According to the Park website,the head tube id must be between 30 mm and 30.1 mmSo,I added a comment to machinist for a tolerance of .001 to the diameter of the head tube.My question is what size do I make the head tube id ?Powder coating adds .005 to the surface.I would assume the head tube surface must not be powder coated because it would interfere with having the headset cups laying perfectly flat on the head tube.I already set my job settings to precision 3d.
So,is there some way to powder coat the head tube but leave the tubes surface,where the headset cups will be pressed in,bare metal ?I apologize if I have not made myself clear enough.

Please help.

I did not find the right solution from the internet.
