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.

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.

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.
