    DIY: how to de-anodize billet parts.

    Copying my thread from GPN to here. Here is how I do it and some of the stuff I have done. Enjoy.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I have done my re-search on this. I have not found a thread on GPN that show's you how to do this. However there are a few threads in the article section that tell you how TO anodize.

    I get PM's all the time asking me how do I get my parts to look so sweet. so I decided to make a thread for everyone.

    also there are a few threads with people asking how to take off anodize and they get reply's to use easy-off. DONT its way to harsh on the aluminum. I have tried it.

    best part about it is that greased lightning is soft on the hands, no gloves needed. the process will take anywhere from 30min to an hour and a half depending on the size of the part.


    FRIST STEP: go buy a gallon of, greased lightning. get the 1 gallon bottle. they are $8.49 out the door at lowes.

    SECOND STEP: get a part you would like to strip. (this is my goped 10th anniversary gas cap)

    THIRD STEP: submerge the part in the greased lightning.... it looks so bad *** when it starts to bubble.

    FOURTH STEP: as the part is soaking, shake the container to make the liquid slosh around. do it ever now and then.


    STEP FIVE: once the part is done take it out and dry it off fast, the aluminum will start to oxidize. when its all dried off put some polish on it. I use mothers. :nice:

    and tada. all done. i knew you could do it.
