Default Anodising Parts

Just a bit curious about anodising parts and considering doing it to my car.

My understanding is that first the top layer of the metal is stripped by acid and then the process is then applied but my question is whether the removing of the material will make an effect on tollerances ie parts not aligning anymore or is it so minute that there is no problem?

For Gold:

items needed:

1 bowl
simple green
1 pair of alligator clips
tape
your titainium.
7 9 volt batteries

1. connect the 9 volt batteries in series

2. tape the negitive lead to the botton of a dry bowl and attach the other to negitive on the battery

3. fill the bowl with simple green

attach the other aligator clip to the positive side of the battery, and clip on to the titainum.

4. dip half of the titainium in the solution DO NOT touch the negitive lead in the bottom of the bowl, DO NOT put the positive aligator clip in the solution. Will see bubbles from the negitive lead on the bottom of the bowl, when it slows or stops the process is done, flip the TI over and repeat.

That's completely false, almost every car on the market uses anodized aluminum parts.

Well MY T2 is not all Ti and it was anodized.... The process you posted is for Ti. But to anodize Aluminum, (which is what ALL cars or made of) is a totally different process.

You will not see any fitment issuses. ALL Aluminum is anodized CLEAR when new, if not you would have to polish it all the time because the oils from you skin would cause it to tarnish/dull.

Not exactly correct. All aluminum is what's called "mill finish" when it is extruded. Clear anodizing provides a different and more uniform finish than mill finish. The majority of the material is made for purposes other that the exacty shape/profile that it is extruded in. Anodizing stock for machining & other manufacturing purposes makes no cost effective sense.
