I need to remove the factory red anodizing on a Mag tail cap down to the bare aluminum. What is the best way to do this?? Thanks.

Greased Lightning cleaner removes anodize as well as Draino.

Thanks very much. A really small amount of Draino in water followed by hot water should do the trick.

I put my cap in straight draino for 10 min and used a plastic brush to remove most of the anodizing,and stuck it back in for a few min more to finnish.

The length of time it takes depends on the strength of the solution. It took me less than 10 minutes, I'd say.

PS: Hope you're wearin' gloves & goggles!
