Anodized/Restore Front Panel. Anyone knows if it's possible?

Considering a rare player such as Pioneer HLD X0:


This player front panel and side panels are not painted, they are Adonized.

I know there is possible to restore a fully front panel, top and side panels byt adonize again. But how can we find the same black colour used by factory so the player meets the factory specs?

Anyone has a clue of someone who experience that can do that?

I've checked these guys, but don't know if they are indicated:


Any suggestion?

Tank you everyone

I don't know for sure, but we have parts anodized at work by a vendor and I think anodizing is pretty standard in color. I think the variation is in the other specifications other than the color, like hardness. You would obviously have to find out the specific process used to match it exactly, but I bet a standard black anodizing would at least be close unless it's something special.
