I don't think you will find many people on this forum supportive of anodizing anything structural on the airframe. Sure the mainspar is, but Van's put a lot of work into engineering this and took the anodizing into account when performing the analysis. You should read the article below regarding the crash of a kit helicopter due to anodized components. Just get yourself a good quality two pack paint and it will be as tough as nails. My total interior paint weight after curing came to 113g. Nothing in the scheme of things.
Here's the article:
