'easy off' oven cleaner works geat, just dont leave the parts in too long. About 5 minutes should do the trick.

Yes... Easy OFF oven cleaner... it will work faster if you put the parts in the oven at 300deg. for about 5min. then spray the oven cleaner on it.

There are actual anodizing stripper solvents, the problem with EZ off is after it takes off the anodizing, it will begin to attack the aluminum, leaving pits and a crappy surface. The anodizing stripper only attacks the anodized layer, and doesn't harm the aluminum after the anodizing is gone. You can find the stripper on this site http://www.caswellplating.com/ Good Luck

I just checked out Caswell plating... I may have to buy my own Anodizing kit... not bad price for a small kit... only $200.00
Now I can do my own orange parts..

That isn't everything though, you need a power supply to get the current, and a few other things. I thought about it a little while ago, that's why I have the link, but it is too much of a hassle. If you want to learn some more about anodizing, this is the site http://www.focuser.com/atm/anodize/anodize99.html

Not many people have a bead blaster though...

RC-Zombies - DynoMan on this site does anodizing. That isn't his full username, has some digits on the back, but check him out in the paint forum.

You should send him a few parts off the Web Special to make sure it's a good match...
