Default Beadlock ring anodizing????

So I have these rings that used to be red but now they are pink due to the sun I guess, I was hoping maybe someone knew a trick to remove the anodizing back to the raw aluminum. I tried oven degreaser and it took it off alittle but not all the way. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks

Just don't leave it on too long it will pit the aluminum. I keep getting sidetracked when I do this and it makes it a lot more work to clean.

Grease Lightning. Let the rings soak for about an hour and they will be bare aluminum. I just did some Axial green a little while ago. It worked great.

The media blast cabinet here at work made short work of the anodizing on my rings.

Easy off in the yellow can then aluminum polish. Oh it helps if you hit the rings with a toothbrush right before rinsing the oven cleaner off. It seems to make it easier to polish them in less time if you do that.
