Has anyone painted their ricochet skid plate? Looking to doing mine black.... tips and hints please.
this is an older post so im just posting for future reference but true anodize uses a solution that the skid plate will be immersed in while an electric current is applied. Something brushed on might have been alodine which is what aerospace parts are sometimes dipped in to aid in paint adhesion. A type of it is also found on the inside of aluminum beverage cans.The skid plate is aluminum. Paint won't stick without using special prep and paint. Your better deal is to anodize it. Easy to do, just clean, wire brush to get a grain to the metal, then wipe it on. Just search Amazon for black anodize dye.
