Painted my StreetFox with X-Metals anodized blue. Has special silver primer/basecoat, top color is semi-transparent, gives a very believable anodized look. Words can't describe, see pic.
Flashlight is anodized alum, bike is steel w/paint. Slightly different shades, but exact same look!

I found some anodized colors at local auto parts store. Plasikote is the brand and they have red, blue, purple and gold, I think. All look good. I'm thinking red anodized for my Marauder. Should look really good. What did you use for you base coat? I have some good chrome silver engine paint that should work. Blessings!! DaveC:sunny:

The Krylon has a special silver basecoat.

I checked out a demo video by the Plastikote brand and they have a clear primer for clean shiny metal so as to alleviate sanding marks and another base coat primer for sanded metal. It all looks pretty good. I like the look of colored chrome. Should be a stand-out. Blessings!! DaveC:sunny:
