now anodizing on the other hand is expensive. average quote from all the shops i have contacted that do small parts have all had $125-150 min cost. but that is for a batch. so you can basically send in all the alloy parts for a blinged out vehicle and get everything done for the min price. i will be sending off a durango b4 prototype chassis along with 50+ alloy bits all to be anodized in the next few months.
i look at it like this. i am not a very talented driver. my driving skills on the track never look good. and after 20+ years racing i understand and am ok with my skill level. but with a stand out nice ride you look good no matter what your driving looks like. lol
Thanks for the info on that. I never thought about doing that before. I will have to look for an local powder guy and an anodizing shop.
