STI stud for anodize racking?

STI stud for anodize racking?

Afternoon all,

Looking for some insight. I’m making some revs to this old part, but I can’t find where the previous designers racked it for anodizing. Is it common for a plater to have the appropriate hardware (oversized stud?) to use one of the STI helicoil tapped holes to rack the part? This is a marine instrument endcap and there are no dry surfaces save the bottom face, where there’s no meat to tap in a new mounting hole.

Thank you all for taking the time!
