OK, thinking out loud here:



As I am trying to put together a master plan for my project before I dig in, I was thinking of anodizing my engine cylinders/caps. I don't want the rest of the engine anodized (or least not the same color), but am lead to believe I'll have to "dip" the engine in order to do this.



So,

Has it been done before, that you know of?

Should it be done, or is it too risky, or likely to fade/react poorly with the engine heat?

Cost estimates? (I would plan on doing tank, wheels, and a few small parts at the same time).



This would be a "pro" job should I go through with it, so no need to run up home brew costs.



Any ideas?

Hmm!

It would look good if you can do it

How would you anodise the outside and not everything inside?

I'm guessing you'd have to gut the thing and make damn good blanks to keep the

electrolyte out when its in the tank.

Anodizing the inside shouldn't make any problems for you.



Personally, I intend to powdercoat my next engine
