  • $$$ to anodize top triple clamp

    What do you guys think it would cost to have the top triple clamp anodized (blue), I was about to polish it but I saw a blue anodised one and it looks sweet.

    cheers,

    Thought about doing a search on DIY anodising? Could be fun.

      making "amphetamines" would be easier

              F.Y.I.

              I found a site a while back on how to Anodize parts at home....

              http://www.warpig.com/paintball/technical/anodize.shtml

              take this for what its worth, i've not done it or seen it... so i'm not vouching for it...

              ... if anyone does try it, I'd love to hear (see) how it worked....

                Home anodizing is possible, i do it. But the results are variable and final finish depends greatly on identifying correctly the grade of aluminium to be treated. I would have thought about $30 maximum at the commercial anodizers would be far more cost effective than DIY, try to use one recommended by others who are happy with the result.
                Hope that helps

                  Polish It

                  Annodizing works best on billet parts, the not so high quality cast pieces(ie. stock triple) can come out all kinds of strange unintended colors.
