My understanding is the nicer the surface the more even the color will be. You can polish them yourself or pay the anodizer to re-work them. I went with new or nearly new parts just to make sure nothing would get screwed up.
I am pretty sure you can remove old ano and re-ano but I think the final thickness will be changed and may affect the tolerance.
Gather enough parts and do a batch, usually cheaper.
WOW! How jelous am i , as im building a dh bike white frame green stickers , adn am trying to buy green bits , and all i have is green pimp my pedals kit , green crank bolt , green goodridge hoses.
Can you get stuff anodized that has already had this done , for instance i have a grey rear hope bulb hub and a front gold hope hub , could these be anodized green.
Just wondering how much it cost for the cranks to be done?
