I'm looking to anodize a groove to match my other two and have a theme going. Ive found many places to get it anodized but they are asking like $150+ for a single piece (well 4 if you take it apart) but still that is ridiculous. Does anyone know of a place that will do good work but also is more cost friendly?

I figured it would be in the $30-50 range but I'm not going to do it if its 3x my expected price. I know i can get it hydro dipped for ~$50 so if it comes down to it, that might be the way I have to go or I believe a friend back home did some ano work but I havent heard back from him about it so hoping he has some good news for me and for all of us :D

Location also doesn't matter since i figured id have to ship it to them.

Thanks guys :beer:

Heck no on the DIY, it will turn out like crap. Read wayyyyyy to many things about people suggesting DIY and then the ano just fades or is cloudy. Plus im not doing a simple one color ano so its not like oh dip the parts in this and it'll work. Its going to take skill to get the design i want

Totally forgot about MrCrouse, ill need to shoot him a PM

Mrcrouse said he would do anodized msv1 for around $35-40 with prep.
