    CHECK IT OUT! camo anodized parts! Urban for my FR rig!

    Here it is the camo anoding, I work at a anodizing shop and have been woking on the ano print dyes and airbrushing.
    Worked and looks great, I did my RF n. shore cranks, odi loc ons, fork clamps, shock shuttle, RF chain rings and a few others. I got avy dhs's on both rides and been looking at having craig take it apart and let me do the shock body.
    I am doing a complete frame next week for a budy in the urban camo.
    I did parts on my rm7 as well, the cranks are a yellow to red fade to match the spring and the avy dhs stickers.
    I am looking to get a set of atom lab trail pimp rims and do them as well then put the decals back on em.

    Here's the site for where I work.

    air brushing took the longest, about 1 hour to get the ano print dyes to soak without pooling up.
    The dyes ae actual ano print dyes made for anodizing, $365 qt, not cheap.

    The blasting must be done lighty as to not disemper the surface of the aluminum, #70 grit media no less. ry and not hotspot it when dusting it.
    Its actually easier for us to do it if its ano'd already, we just stick it in the tank.
    If its powder coat do not try blasting it first, use aircraft stripper and remove the pwdrcoat first.
    Its easier to just send it in, we strip and single color ano a frame really cheap.
    Just email sales at Absolute and it'l get to me.

    Thanks, anyone intresed in this you can email me at sales@absolutefinish.com and refer to mtbr, we only offered this to mtbr members and RM members. It is a brodeal hook up and not a retail item, we have a customs section for this kinda work and it's because I bike and this group as well as RM have helped me so much as far as parts and places to ride.
    It's my way of saying thanks, by the way we don't clear any personal profit I am salary and the shop barely covers it's head on these items.

    So PM me or email me at absolute finish.
