Anyone have their Lian Li case custom anodized? Going to anodize my G70 and want to make sure that after stripping it down if I can get it all done at once or if there are different alloys I need to be aware of so I don't ruin any pieces.

Would hate to have it done and then wonder what happened to some of my interior parts...

I'm currently living in Singapore, where services are generally cheaper than other developed countries.

However, the price to anodize parts is still very expensive. It would cost almost as much as a mid-range Lian Li case already...

Depending on where you live, you could check around in industrial areas for the price. Good luck with your project :)

Whats the reasons that you want to go with anodising anyway?

You can get the same look with painting and if its scratch resistance you want you could go with powder coating.

Just a thought.

Anodizing looks better than most paints. So, if the OP can afford it is a no-brainer.

BTW, to the OP, look at bike/car modders.

DIY anodizing, I might give it a try on some scrap metals I find one of these days. But I think for my case I would go with powder coating, local guy is fairly reasonable.

Best place Ive ever had anno done: http://www.pkselective.com/
Ive had 5 different paintball guns annoed by them over the years. They NEVER fail to impress. And yes, they are expensive. Powdercoating is FAR cheaper.

But if you want something unreal, they are the place to go

Local shop can do it for a descent price, and anodizing, for me, looks much better than powdercoat. Have a guy that powdercoats here also, but from what I have seen it is easier to get a mirror finish with anodizing. That and the Ano guy has a polishing tank...
Also it looks like he can do a copper color and that alone would save me a ton of money over buying copper. Can't do that with powdercoat, well and actually have it look like copper and not copper baked paint.
;)

Just want to make sure if I strip the case down and have it all done at once that nothing comes out screwed up, ie mixed alloys or whatever.

I've only seen one custom anodized. The lian li cube in green.. F*CKING AMAZING!!


I've anodized my bicycle and it's unfortunately easy to scratch.

What about anodize, followed with a clear powdercoat?

Well that would certainly make it scratch resistant.

You could also do a clear paint coat.

I suspect if you had any other metal in the process it could screw it up, id suggest taking out all rivets n screws.

ChilledPC do it, check out the TJ07 (http://www.chilledpc.co.uk/tom/My%20Albums/TJ07Blue/index.html) they recently anodized. They also ship worldwide I believe.

Yeah, gonna tear it all down. They can also anodize rivets...

Now the plan is to go up to Spokane and have the mobo tray, hdd holder and couple other pieces copper plated. All I need is the money...
