Best color matching ano service?

After checking out the stickies and lurking about, I've failed to find a definitive answer so here goes:

I want to get my Alias Intimidator frame anodized to match my body, what companies offer a color/fade matching service? I want the match to be as close to perfect as possible. Keep in mind the frame is actually 2 pieces.

Here's a picture for reference:


If you've had a color match service done and were pleased with the results, I'd love to see pictures accompanied with which part was matched to what.

Also, what's your best guesstimate on price? (Not really a factor.)

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Color matching is/can be rather difficult, and throwing a fade in mix will make it that much harder. Best of luck

bazooka is doing a color match for me but I will tell ya it's not the same way you want yours done. he's matching it best he can to two pieces I sent with the gun from another gun. but after some emails and understanding some of the process better I would say matching the frame to the species body would be extremely difficult to not possible especially with the three color fade. but I would just email him and ask. he will tell you the truth not just what you want to hear

i think you would have a better chance of just redoing the whole gun.. gonna be very hard to match a 3 color fade exactly the same

That would be the ideal solution, but there are two complications.
1. When stripping the dragon and species bodies there's a chance the acid will eat away enough metal that the barrel threads show through to the outside as seen here:

and here

2. The feedneck base that's supposed to be press-fit was JB Weld'd in place by a previous owner.
