Bikes2NV used to do it, but I heard they are very fragile and chip/flake easily. It's an expensive process and no place that does it offers a guarantee, like they would with chroming.

Some of local guys mentioned that their chrome work wasnt up to par. Any insight on this?

????? I dont think your talking about anodizing putty.. Anodizing uses dye and electricity to infuse the dye color onto the metal. I dont know how it would be possible to chip or flake.. ShittyGSXR anodizes stuff... including his exhaust pipe....

I heard that bikes2nv sucked but I have no personal experience there.. only what I have heard.

Yes, I am talking about anodizing. Looks like colored chrome. I inquired about it with B2nv long time ago and got what I posted.

Some people swear by them and others hate em. There are so many other chroming places out there to choose from though. They were one of the only ones anodizing.

I've personally never seen any anodizing flake. I just got some stuff back from my anodizer, I dont know if I can post pics since it is a product of a motorcycle company that does not sponser here.

As far as chrome goes, I deal with Susie and D&S customs in Santa Ana, Ca. Whenever I've had a problem with the chrome job(which was once) she made it a pleasent experiance and did e verything to make it right.

I would be willing to ship them, it's weird, so many powdercoaters & chromers but seems to be damn few anodizers.

Well chroming is popular for the shiny freaks out there. P-coating is quick, simple and very durable. Anodizing is a long process with many chemical bath solutions and I've never heard of it flaking or chipping off. I don't even understand how that could happen. Whoever did the work prob. missed a step or 4. Honestly, P-coating should start to chip before ano does.
