Good job and another on the back burner.  :nrocks:

Anodizing is a plating like chrome with a different choice of color and texture. Powder coating is a less permanent solution as it can be remove like paint. Either way choose a good pro to perform  the work. You can do you own powdercoat yourself with varying result.

Anodizing is not plating. You are forming an oxide layer on the aluminium surface and the coloring dyes get locked into the matrix of the oxide molecules

Thatís correct Andrew the oxide makes like a honey comb layer and the die goes into this matrix which forms a hard coloured oxide layer on top of the metal part. :coffee:
