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

Aaronpifow:
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.

awemawson:
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

Biggles:
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:
