Dupli-color has a paint which gives an anodized color effect, it's call Metalcast http://www.duplicolor.com/products/metalcast.html You could use it to create something like that. Haven't used it yet but I am going to check it out.

I have used the Metalcast Red to paint my Hatch Struts. The red is almost an exact match for Inferno Red but the finish looks much "deeper" than the OEM. I like it, the Kleen Wheels are next on my "to paint" list!

tpscruiser, Your struts look good, did you use the ground coat before appling the Metalcast on your hatch struts?

IRPT,
I removed the struts, scuffed them up with a Scotch-Brite pad. Applied 2 coats of the silver Ground Coat, not too wet. If it looks a little "rough" that's okay. When you apply the 2 or more finish coats, the color will look really deep!
