Everybody has access to anodizing. Look around the phone book - there should be places near you. It will probably cost you $75-100 to get a single lot of parts stripped and anodized.

Try google... you will find places in Ontario in no time. If you look hard enough you will also find instructions on how to do your own at home...

Here is a copy of my post about anodising from the NTC3 thread.

If you think you are up to it after reading those links just start on some small old aluminium parts to get a feel for it before you do the chassis

Atomic PC magazine also did a full article on anodising at home as well but not sure if this is available in the US

It costs about 2$ a part.. here in Japan.... and it's even 2$ for a small screw or nut ...... just start to count the Orange parts and you"ll see the $ figure
