Especially in certain sections or does it have to be completely stripped back down and re done?
I have a receiver that is type 3 hardcoat annodized but the finish is wore off on one section and i dont really want to paint over it. The finish wear is on a sharp corner in about a 3 inch long section.I have tried the aluminum black stuff and it doesnt match very well at all.

I've had it done on Street Rod parts, so I don't see why not?

Yes. Someone will be along to tell you where as I forgot the name of the place everyone keeps using for their 80% forgings.

I will call US annodizing next week, hoping that they can just repair the section insteads having to redo the entire receiver.

Speak with the Anodizing reps, I hope I'm wrong, but I don't think they can repair/spot apply hard coat anodizing, it has to be stripped and re-done.

There are different kinds of anodizing, on AR's they use the TypeIII Hard Coat that is far more difficult to form, but it has surface hardness akin to steel.

they'll have to refinish the whole part, meaning stripping the entire part then reanodizing.

I know I did anodizing work for 3 years.
