My first attempt

Im attempting to do some home annodizing. Im starting with my old spyder bolt. Im using red devil lye to strip it right now. Its taking forever. I thought it was supposed to take like 10-15 min but its taken 40 min so far and its still not quite done. I got a couple different sizes of aluminum welding rod from the local welding shop. Ill see which size works the best. I will provide pics as the project comes along. I wont have time until at least monday(probably later) to do the rest of the process. I still havent decided what color to do yet but it will probably end up blue(hopefully) since I have a bunch of extra blue food coloring.

Ive seen older Spyder bolts that were painted or powder coated. Red Devil wont touch painted stuff.

actually the lye worked really well. i didnt leave it in quite long enough so some parts of it didnt get annoed. i ended up dying it green. ill upload some pics soon. i also just finished annoing an old pirhana body that was lying around at work. ill get some pics of that too.
