Default Anodized Tuned Pipe?

I could have sworn I saw a Anodized or some other method of coloring metal tuned pipe on one of the pictures in this Forum. Are there any manufacturers that make tuned pipes in different colors?

Regards,
Chuck

You can anodise them yourself if you insist... Do a websearch on "DIY anodising"...
It is not that difficult really.

most shops have a rather high minimum fee ($50.00)

aluminum only...no steel or brass inserts (pressure taps, helicoils, ect)

Years ago er decades ( 1983) I lived in Houston. A small anodising shop did some prototype scope mounts for me. Anodized and dyed black and very dark blue, final bill was 12.00 for 12 pieces.

make some phone calls and ask for a price

if yuo want a bright finish you will need to polish that pipe

a little ruby red rouge and a muslin wheel will make that pipe look like chrome.
