Default My 80% build...

Started with a Tactical Machine lower, had it Anod type 3 at A to Z metal in miramar. Came back really nice just a little thick for the jig at the Ares Armor build but worked out fine after a little love, Ares Armor, two thumbs up!!

Not at all I checked like a mad man for a place and just stumbled on a thread about anodizing and there they were. See Kent and he will take care of you

So got the LPK installed and a Prince 50 bullet button. Got a magpul 10/30 clip from parallax tact, everything went smooth just the saftey selector switch was hard to switch back and forth, after weighing my options tried oiling the switch b 4 cutting the spring or filing the detent, works perfect now.

Is the camera flash washing out the color of the lower or is it 2 different shades of black

Does AtoZ metals have an FFL? Should I do the anodizing prior to finishing the lower?

Do the anodizing prior to finish machining the lower, no chance of "Imperial Entanglements" that way.
