Default Any red parts for tc3

I was wondering if any company manufactured red aluminum parts for the associated tc3. I haven't been able to find any as of yet, and I am looking for a different look for this car. Any suggestions?

just go to your local anodizer and have all your parts re-anodized to any color you want.

IRS makes some red parts i think, or maybe that is for the Losi???, but rc-zombies is right, that would prolly be the easiest thing to do.

would it be expensive to have parts reanodized? Does anyone have any experience with this?

You could could actually do it yourself, its not too hard, just do a little research. My friend had it done in red, and it cost him about 60 bucks for everything on the car that is aluminum.

What is your turn around time and average cost to do a whole car... $$USD?

Turnaround time is two days from when i recieve the parts to when i reship them back to you. My price is $55 US assuming you pay shipping, and that is good for 40 pieces. ($50 US for Schumacher vehicles) If your car is older or the company uses different types of aluminum the finish may differ. Very important to clean your shocks of all oil as they are the trickiest parts to do. Setup, droop gauges, tweak board, screwdrivers can all be done. Ive done lock nuts for myself but one in ten get destroyed and hardened aluminum doesnt work well at all! Ive tried.

I am extremely interested, but I need to decide on the color in which I want to change the part to. Do you have any sample photos of the color on applied parts?
