Ade, how about colour anodising your sump, to impress the spectators when you roll the car?
Ade, that's a splendid idea from Andy.
I think you should give it some serious consideration.
And while you're at it, anodise the roof.
Thereby impressing any spectators under the car ...
Unfortunately, the roof is steel, will have to go with a fancy paint effect! Mind you, any spectators under a rolled car will have other things on their mind, e.g. the craftsmanship that went into removing the sunroof (it's got a sheet of tin riveted over the hole) and the remarkable snowplough on the front which, there's a good chance, has just removed their legs
I do like the idea of anodizing it. I've got a couple of knackered car batteries, would it be sensible to use that as the acid, or should I shell out on the proper stuff?
More importantly, what colour??? I can think of red (common), blue (nicer IMHO, but still common), gold (a bit blingy perhaps), green (eco-special V8
Although it's cut out of ali, there is one steel insert (the threaded bar that holds one of the plugs in), I don't want that to vanish in whatever solution(s) I use.
If I'm going to anodize, I'd like to do it before I skim the top (that bit won't be seen anyway, and I just prefer the idea of it being bare ali).
