Could you strip the hardcoating on the LOSI JRX-S aluminum? Mainly shock adjusters, shock caps, motor mount, diff tubes, stand-offs, etc? I was wanting these items done in Red and I think??? they are all hardcoated.

I can strip hard coating. I really would not recomend it for the simple fact of it defeats the purpose of hard coating. they hard coat like for instance your shocks for the purpose of lubercation and the wear factor. hard coat has an extremely smooth surface which provides even less friction than type 2 anodize. which is what I do. the surface is still smooth but not as fine as hardcoat. if you still want it done just for the fact you want a color change and do not care about that aspect of hardcoating then email me a pic and I will let you know what I can do. I hope this was helpful for you.

Something else to consider when stripping hardcoating off of parts, hard coating actually builds up a thickness on the parts it is done to. The thickness that it adds, it also eats into the parts. Hardcoating actually changes the surface compostiton of the materials that the process is done to.

If you have items stripped of hardcoating and bearings go on or through these parts, the bearings will now fit sloppier, shock threads will be looser, possibly causing leaks, thickness of the material will be thinner causing the parts to be weaker. If you can get parts that were only anodized and not hardcoated, it would be a much better starting point, as you will lose less material.

yes that is also true. I did not think of the bearing issue but you are right.

Could you send a few pictures of your work on Green? Looking for Mt. Dew, mellow yellow racing green, I quess Neon? for TC4 parts. Also does striping a color hurt the final color?

Thanks
