Hi All

 

Does anyone know of anywhere that I can get my black petrol cap re-anodised (it's started to fade).

 

Cheers

 

Craig

If you have id done in hard anodising rather than dyed which is usually soft it should not fade in the future.

I used Runcorn Anodising for mine and it faded in about 6 months to a nasty purple.  Apparently they struggled with the grade of alloy.  Might be something to watch for.
