"Color anodizing braided fuel lines"



September 4, 2019

Hello. I am looking to see if at all possible to anodize braided fuel line. I was wondering if it's possible to do it. Due to the braided rubber. Would the acid bath destroy the fuel line? Would I have to separate the fuel line from the rubber and then anodize it? Looking for a specific colour to match my engine bay hence why I'm asking.
Thank you.

A. Is the braid actually aluminum? Most are stainless steel.

It would be very difficult to anodize braid. There would a problem of little/no anodizing where the strands overlap, and rinsing would be a bear.

And you'd have to remove the braid from the assembly.
