These are all the aluminum panels and parts sent out to be anodized. All the parts were made from 5005 alloy that was recommended as one of the best for anodizing.

Panels were anodized in bronze. I was pleasantly surprised at how reasonable the price was.

Some really nice panels there.
The finish looks great as well.

All the air brush work --- lettering and pin stripping is done with paint. No vinyl any where.

The up front stripping. ----- Since the advent of computer aided vinyl wrap the skills required to perform the above work is dying out. There are fewer and fewer people out there that can even do this type of work.
