Post Paint Jobs...

I have a VS2 body that is in a desperate need of a re anodizing... I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get this done? I tried 125 Customs, I sent them 3 quotes about 3 weeks apart, and still no reply from them!

Can't wait forever, If you know where I can get re anodizing service, let me know....!

You know you could always just make your own stencils and then use automotive touch up paint instead of having it done for you.

How much do you think it will cost me to get just the VS2 body done?

Look in your phone book under metal finishers, find out if they do aluminum (annodizing). You would have to dissassemble the marker yourself. They usually charge per patch so if you know anyone else that wants to get somethings annodized the same color you could split the cost. Since you are some one off the street and not a business they might just include it with another patch, if not it could cost you $75 or more a batch. If they charge you full cost find out what colors they do if your end up paying close to a$100 for it might as well have the only red vs2 at your field. I lucked out and was able to get my vs2 black anno'd for only 25 bucks I think they mixed it with someone else's stuff. There are probably afew metal finishers hurting for work because of the economy that may end up wanting to post in paintball forums to deversify there business.

most places charge about $25 per big part, $10-15 per small.

Those are a few cheap places from PbNation. I know Odd is really good too but I think they are expensive.

So I want to just clearer things up once and for all.

How much money will it cost me to have one Spyder VS2 body re-anodized black? And where can I get it done?

Thanks
