Re-Anodizing a Phantom

I know this has probably been ask 1000 times but...
Do you think it would be ok to re-anno a phantom?
I heard that they have really low tolerances.
Has anyone done this before and if you have, who did it for you?
I'm hoping for a orange and clear acid wash

i think it should be alright. they have to strip your current anno in order to do the anno you want, so it's not like it should effect it too much at all if at all.

as long as you send it off to a good servicer, you should be alright. I mean..they did have to annodize them at some point...so they are annodizable, lol.

although i do not own a phantom and have not used one and know little about them, for all i know they could have low tolerance to such changes.. Hopefully i helped a tiny bit? lol.

sum1 should be able to tell you in the next like....5min..lol.

stripping anno removes enough good metal to cause fit issues

its not that a phantom has low tolerences its that theres not much meat to begin with. re-anodizing a phantom is generally not the best idea,getting the parts in the color you want or raw from cci is generally cheaper.

this may sound retarded...

but if you sell your current phantom, take that cash and put it towards a brand new phantom in the color(s) that you want...

Yes, you can re-anno a phantom as long as you remove the steel inserts and pin. Ideally, you'd just sell your current phantom, buy a raw one from CCI, get it anno'd however you like and then send it back to CCI for assembly. But I've successfully re-anno'd a couple phantoms.
