One or two here have expressed experience in anodizing. Regarding what colors to use, that is a personal choice, depends on what your end goals are, original or custom.

When Bernie advertised, I bought one of his red tanks for a custom engine in the making.

thanks GG

I have a Bernie red tank. we are soo lucky to have Him keeping our hobby alive . And Matt from EX


I appreciate the search link, and will be going through those threads later this morning. I just figured, heck, anodizing, maybe I can figure it out, maybe its another way to waste time and money in my endless pursuit of going bankrupt and homeless due ONLY to cox model engines. Smile Smile Smile
