I'm curious where to get custom Anodizing done. Local, Vermont or New England is better, but so far I've com up blank finding anyone who does that sort of thing around here. Anyone else know?
Ask around at local motorcycle shops. They often deal with custom powder coating, chroming and anodizing.
Yea look for a full service machine shop as another option. I know one of the bigger machine shops we use for work does anodizing as well as other coatings (teflon is pretty cool too).

What are you trying to anodize? You can do a basic job yourself, but you need a big enough container. If it's like a whole frame, It's better to send it out.
I am looking for a 52cm-ish lugged mixte or ladies frame. Pm if you got one.

She doesn't want or need a $200+ wheelset, but would really like the color matched wheels for cool factor, and I'd really like to be the cool dad to provide them.
Laquer my man. Paint those hoops up with nail polish coloured laquer. A bunch of coats.
She can run brakeless if she doesn't want them scuffed up.
