    I hear anything with lye (Drano, EZ-Off) will strip off the anodizing. However, if left on for too long it can also pit the aluminum. Google it.

    I've done it once and I will never do it again. I made a purple Zaskar silver. It's tough to judge the amount of time to leave it dipped before removing and rinsing it and if it's in a tad too long it leaves a harder scalier surface on the aluminum and makes it darn near impossible to polish without first sanding it. Tons of work to get it off in all the tight spots around the welds and triple triangle. Take it from a guy that's worked on lots of them over the years...pay someone else to do it that does it professionally or enjoy it'scurrent aged, ridden hard patina just the way it is..
    Needed: 26.8mm XTR seatpost, blue GT/Grundig Jersey.
