    This may sound cheap, but I use Krylon or Rustoleum flat black or satin black spray to refinish aluminum. Sand the imperfections smooth, clean and dry the surface and shoot. I then either let it dry in the Texas sun for two days or bake it overnight in the oven at about 200 degrees. Properly done, it looks like anodizing.Brownell's makes a baking enamel but I have not tried it. www.brownells.com There is no way to easily anodize aluminum in a home workshop.

    The best I've found is a commerical grade flat black spray paint from Sunbeam Outdoor Products, it actually dries to a satin finish with a slightly textured appearance and is hard as nails, very resistant to strong solvents. It's a paint to redo the outdoor gas and charcoal grills they make. I use it simular to the way nunn described, bake the part/s in the oven at around 200-250 degrees for a few hours. I've used it to redo lots of military metal gun parts with good results. It's as good at least as some gunsmith applied spray finishs I've had done for a lot less cost. I work at the Sunbeam facility that produces grills, if anyone is interested I'll post or email the part number and address or 1-800 phone number to obtain it.

    Spring Creek, the number is 1-800-641-4500, ask for customer service. The part number is 20-7408, flat black spray paint. They also have a "grey black" that looks like it would closely match most of the grey parkerized military finishes, I havent had a chance to compare it yet, dont have the part number for it handy. Suggestion, if you follow nunn's post on preparation then spray lightly, let dry about an hour then repeat, let dry to touch then heat as discussed you should have good results. Let us know,,
