Arrow ALUMINUM ANODIZING

Attention all R/C enthusiasts, I am now offering anodizing services exclusively for anyone who has R/C cars, trucks, planes,helicopters, etc.Anodizing your aluminum parts will harden the surface of them. It also protects it from harsh chemicals and oxidation, that could lead to the deterioration of your parts. If you have any bare aluminum parts you were thinking of having done, you can get them anodized pretty much any color you want. If you have parts that you would prefer to have clear anodized with a mirror shine, I can also do that. I am offering these services to all, from the "BACKYARD BASHERS" to the "TEAM DRIVERS". This is for anyone who would like to have their parts done and not pay those ridiculously high "LOT CHARGES" that the big plating companies charge. It's bad enough that all of us take a huge hit in our wallets already with this hobby. We all like to have our rides looking good, especially on race day. Even if you have parts that are dinged up, I can make them look out of the box new again,depending on how bad they are. For most parts damaged from normal wear and tear they will look new again. Underside of chassis that get scratched and gouged from on and offroad driving CAN be done but they will not look "BRAND NEW", if the chassis is severely damaged. I can minimize this though, and it will make a huge improvement on what it used to look like. I guarantee my work and will make every effort to make you satisfied. So if you have bare aluminum parts (like one of those pretty BMI TC3 nitro chassis), parts that need fixed and cleaned up,or just want a change of color, contact me for a free quote. Email me pics for a more detailed quote.

after anodizing the surface does become harder. depending on the alloy i really could not say how much unless i put the pieces in a rockwell hardness tester. what are you looking to have done?

no, in fact if you try and anodize to long the anodize layer you have built will eat itself away. this will lead to the dye not taking properly.

Does it only work on alluminum? How much would it be to do a set of screws for a car? And can you re-anodize something like my blue GT chasis to fill in all silver gouges?

sorry I do not do hardware(screws) because of the material they are made from. alot of manufactures use all sorts of alloys and you never know what you have. usually they do not come out good you get pitting and streaking. the only way to do it is if you know EXACTLY what the alloy is. also on your chassis send me a pic and I will tell you what I can do.
