    Faded anodized FTM

    Ok guys need some opinions. I have an '09 FTM with the anodized orange finish. Absolutely loved it when i bought it. Although after about 6 mths it started to fade even though it is kept inside and only sees direct sunlight when traveling in back of my truck to the trails. It now looks like a very light peach color....kind of embarrassing. So I am thinking of stripping it down to bare metal and just sealing it.
    Any thought, opinions, or suggestions?

    Yes do it. Stripping a bike is easy. Should run you about $40.

    What about the fact that it's anodized?
    If so, what do I need?
