    I've been parkerizing some parts to go with my '33 VL build and put together a tutorial on how to do it. Turns out once you get the parkerizing solution, you can get all the other supplies for under $50. Plus the parkerizing solution is reusable, so it's pretty much a one time investment. If you can boil a pot of water, you have half the skills needed to parkerize your own parts.
