Deanodizing parts
 
Hey guys, how are you deanodizing parts? I have AX10 and want to get rid of all the green for my scale build.

Offroader5 11-06-2007 07:58 PM

JIA suggests using Greased Lightning...says it works great."thumbsup"

ctrwannabe 11-06-2007 08:06 PM

i used the easy off yellow can, supposidly its the only one that works, but it did tarnish my metal, i just painted over it you could polish them after

Greased Lightning or Whink Rust Stain Remover work very well.

Anodizing doesn't need to be removed before powdercoat does it? Just thought I'd tag my question on here rather than start a new topic.

Let the lye (easy off) sit on there for about 5-10 minutes depending on the depth of the ano and tempurature. Don't brethe the vapors or get the lye on your skin. Wipe it off every few minutes and see if it has hit metal yet. As soon as it is clean hit it with baking soda and water to polish and neutralize the lye. If you let it sit too long it will pit and corrode the aluminum too much.

Greased Lightning

Even RCCaraction did a piece on it.

JUSTGOINGSLOW 11-07-2007 11:42 AM

But does it dis-color the alumium and how long did you let it soak for

JUSTGOINGSLOW 11-07-2007 11:45 AM

In the whink rust remover

aggressivellc 11-07-2007 12:06 PM

Depends some times you just have to poor it on and let it sit for a couple of seconds.

Id use Dran-o sink clog remover. Worked amazing and left a mirror finnish. I let them sit for about 45 mins.

greaed lightning by far the best. non-toxic, won't corrode alum., will look good unless parts are made of cheap alum. i'd only use easy-off to strip chrome off of plastic. also depending on anodizing, only take 10-15 min to strip, rinse off. you can polish it to a shine with some alum. polish.

Stormin2u 11-07-2007 04:05 PM

Where can you pick up greased lightning? Whats its normal use?

aggressivellc 11-07-2007 04:15 PM

Its a degeaser. You can find it in walmart in the cleaning isle or in the automitive section.

It can also be found at most auto parts stores.

What drain-o gel or just the old straight liquid

I just did my axial kit a minute ago(don't tell my boss) I used a bead blaster, worked very well and left that nice matte finish on the aluminum.
