The rockers on my '04 X-5 had developed some pretty bad fading and discoloration of the anodizing. I talked to Teresa about having them re-anodized and she told me that it would not be a good idea because they would need to strip the old anodizing first and this would likely oversize the bearing bores. I asked her about having them powder coated and I got a green light to to that. Long story short, I ended up having the rockers Teflon coated by a gunsmith that I trusted not to screw them up. I made up some plugs on my lathe to block out the bearing bores and sent them in.
I got them back today and the finish is a perfect satin black. They look so much better.
