    I know think there are a couple guys that have the home kits(seem to remember reading on the baja site).I also looked into the anodizing spray can form,thought that might be worth a try.

    I am trying to stay away from paint. To make it look good the metal will have to be smooth and paint wont stick through the abuse. Timmah I will offer up my alum for you to practice on if you want. I am getting a colored chasis and carbon supports so it will be a spare. Just let me know I am here and on HBF.
