I was into street rod for years, and remember in a street rod magazine awhile back that there was a kit that you could do your own anodizing.
I have gone through years and years of magazines, but can not find the article.
Has anyone else seen or heard of this kit?
I do remember the price at that time was around $125.00, but again this was a few years back.

thanks brc

There's been a few articles and how-tos floating around the internet for some time. Anodizing has become main stream and popular in many other fields besides Street Rods and R/Cs.

Maxx Thasher,
Thanks for the sites on anodizng.
This is what I was looking for.

Let us know which kit you get and how well it works, please. Before and after pictures would be cool as well.

Your very welcome.

Make sure you read and follow all instructions as this isn't exactly child's play. All precautions aren't to be taken lightly.
