Anyone in the Boulder/Denver/Ft. Collins area know where I can find a dealer that sells T6 anodized aluminum tubing? I have only been able to find just regular aluminum tubing (not anodized). Is the anodizing process something I need to do separately? Just trying to put together a new frame. Prefer to do things myself.

any nrs dealer can order by the foot from NRS if you go with their pipe sizing. If you are looking for true tubing I doubt you will find it anodized. NRS does this specifically to make their frames so they don't leave marks on boats, I've never seen any other bulk anodized anything ... ...

Yea that's kinda what I figured. Completely doable. My last frame was not anodized and still has no rust to this day, 8 years. But building a huge fishing frame on my new boat I need it. I can bend aluminum, and do everything except. Thanks for the info
