Default Who does Anodizing?

Have an aluminum swim ladder that is powdercoated. The coating is peeling off and now would like to have it anodized red to match the bezels on the dash. Don't want to recoat it, nor polish and clearcoat.

Anyone know where I might get this done?
Thanks

US1 Fountain,
Are you sure that they are anodized? Mine were Powder coated by Gorilla Powder Coating in Crestwood, IL. Greg, the owner, use to do Gaffrig's Gauges and Bezel's. Does your red look transparent? Has it ever faded? Let me know if you need a number.

Playin,
thanks. Will check into it.

Dan,
It is for a buddy of mine on his Powerquest. Mine are Purple. I have since replace the original steering wheel with a purple MOMO wheel. Looks kewl!
I thought the bezels were anodized. I did not know that powdercoating can give a clear translucant appearance as your dash picture shows. My white powdercoated rails all look more like paint. Different types of PC'ing?

different types of powder....white is a solid base, the purple uses a silver base with a tinted clear top coat

That is correct. He even does the metallic colors also that can sit in the sun and not fade. I'm sure there are other Powder Coaters who can do the same thing.

Are you using the CRT with the new wheel? Either way I'd still love to see a picture. I have been thinking about motiving the Imco wheel to use the CRT. I don't want another Dune Buggy wheel.

CougarMan,
Nice site. I could spend lots of money there.
