I have an '05 Prostock pump that I'd like to have anodized. It is currently an unfortunate shade of orange, which I believe was the stock color. When I bought the gun, it came with the stock stovepipe feedneck and 12" barrel. I never use either of these when I play, having swapped in a clamping feedneck and my Freak barrel. Here's my question: which parts to anodize? I'm definitely doing the body, grip, back block, vertical ASA, and reg. If you were me, would you also do the stock feedneck and barrel? Would you consider doing the Freak front or back and the clamping feedneck? Assume the cost per piece is $15-$20. Which pieces and why or why not? If it makes a difference, I'm not planning on selling this gun any time soon.

Thanks for any ideas.

Chris

if Bazooka Boy is still taking work, its 10/piece for first 10 pieces, and 7/piece after, plus shipping

Thanks, but it wouldn't just be a simple color job. I haven't got it all figured out yet, but I'll probably do an acid wash and splash, too.

each of those are +$3/part, so $16/part and $13/part
