I am also interested in finding some sources who will do anodizing on the small scale, a few parts at a time for hobbyists at reasonable prices.

Going to do a bit of searching right now.

EDIT: Found a little article about DIY anodizing, but not sure how reliable or safe this method is. I don't know much about anodizing aside from the basic theory of it.

He has got out of the anodizing business recently but maybe he will start again with enough potential customers

check his website http://www.pkselective.com/

ask for Peter he is the owner...just tell him it's for RC like the one he did for me, he actually specialize on electic guitars or big parts...so for RC its hard for him to quote until he see's it. He normally charge me minimum of $60 per bag which is equivalent to one car...or you can add little bit more. last time I did 3 cars with three different colors for $120 only. Last color he did for me was gun metal and red on my xray.

PK Selective just did three cars for me and it turned out great, the only bad thing was that a few parts didn't make it back and they really seem to care less!

While you've been away a new invention called the telephone came out >>>

You acquire one of those, read the directions on how to use it and enter the number below

(408) 988-1910

If you're successful, will then be talking to someone at PK.

That's awesome! I tell ya.. what will they think of next?! All this time I thought people that run businesses with web pages and email addresses could actually read! Unfortunately, the time has passed but at least I know they're still willing to do the small work.
