    I didn't anodize mine, but I painted them with hi-temp engine paint

    You can buy the Hopes in already-anodized other colours.

    I can see it being possible to do your black ones in another colour yourself, but it wouldn't be worth the effort.
    Why?
    Because you'd have to separate the alu spider from the stainless rotor and rivets before going through the ano process, and then figuring out how to attach them together again.

    Painting them would be your best bet for a cheap option. Maybe hit your black ones with Easy-Off to strip the black ano, and pollish before painting them with a semi-clear red?

    Or just save the effort, sell your current rotors, and put that cash toward a set of new red ones.
