Default Anodizing???

How much does it cost to have a part anodized a certain color?

Most anodizing shops usually have a minimum batch price. Around here the minimum is $80 for 5 lbs of parts, IIRC.

Yep. Not very hard, just a little time consuming.

this guy specializes in anodizing RC parts, and specifically re-anodizing.. he can strip whatever other stuff is on the parts and recolor it..

If you have a 12V-DC power supply, it's cheap. If you have to buy one, it's expensive.


Either way, I'd just send them to Zig Racing. It's easier and there's no experimenting..
