What goes into the process of anodising? is it just like dyeing the metal?
Or is the colour electronically set in?

you have to take it down personally for a quote. depends on the job. the guy explained to me how it works. it's done a per "rack" bassis. long story, but due to 1 small peice costing the same as 20 small peices (due to the rack used) it depends on the amount of racks.

just go down personally for a quote.

I live about 8 hours away and i cant go down for a quote...i only want to bulkheads,shock caps and shock collars done hot pink.
Probably about 65$?

Does the added layer of anodizing make the car tweak or the shock collars not thread as well?

ok first of im 16 so yes im young but my dad is a sheet metal worker i have worked for stoddarts a large metal fabrication firm so i know a little bit about all thing metal.
anodizing is a [procces of several steps most for cleaning and protecting the annodized piece the preocces of acutally coloring the part is it is on a rack as previously mentioned it is then dipped into i believe acid with dye or just dye not 100% there but i know it is electricly charged than the item attract the particles in the solution(the colour) which is absorbed into the pores of the aluminium.
i could be wrong but i think this is a very basic understanding
hope it help
also if u find some one willing to do small parts dont be to pushy or demanding as this type of work is more of a haslle for them
good luck im thinking green my self

I can vouch for Mr Ron Peters, I had a Cyclone fully anodised in Hara purple a few months ago. Basically all the black alloy parts that came with the kit were done and I paid $75.00. I would not even think of doing it myself. Give him a call.

yeah that's sound roughly right (price wise) also get as much parts as you can anodised all at once. it will cost the same. maybe you can go halves with a friend. (but you two will have to agree on the colour)

do parts that are already anodised able to be reanodised by these people?
does it cost more than normal?
how many colours are there to choose from?
its not easy being green

Yes they can. The cyclone was anodised black and got them to do purple. I paid $10 more than if it was silver anodised.
