I am thinking about removing the anno on a spare luxe accent kit and polishing it out. I've seen that greased lightning is said to work but wanted some options. I do not want to sand it down, I would like to chemically strip it. Thanks

I would highly recommend to either pay for actual anodizing stripper or send it off to get stripped by an anodizing.

If you just throw it into any over the counter lye based stripper your parts wont be as evenly stripped which means more time polishing (and probably wet sanding) and worst case you could mess up your tolerances.

This is why most, if not all, anodiziners will recommend that you do not strip the parts yourself before sending them in to get worked on.

I'm sure some would do it for you any even polish them for you but if you just have the urge to DIY then yes, that will work

Be careful. I sent my parts to an anodizer who used liquid plumber essentially (found out after the fact) and while I believe its saveable, i almost lost my entire projects tolerances as a result. Leaked air everywhere.

I've used grease lightning before on a regulator and it worked great (you could actually see the machine marks on the reg). The strip was very minimal and even, but I would recommend buying some commercial annodise stripper just to play it safe.
