I have seen quite a number of posts and threads about sandblasting or sanding existing factory coatings from parts in preparation of polishing. I found this trick after I sanded and polished my first pulley. What a job! In preparation for the 240 swap, I purchased a black center pulley and didn't want to deal with all of the coating removal and then more sanding to get the part to a polishing point. The product I used is called Klean Stripper and is sold at Home Depot in the paint section. From start to finish was an hour and a half process with very little work involved. Mostly just waiting for the chemical to reactthen some scrapping with a plastic body filler tool ~Don't forget to use gloves! Below are some photos and I will post up more of the polishing process later. Good luck with your mods.

Tony

Works great! Some don't know, but the upper belt guard is aluminum, and strips and polishes easily. Do a search, and see some great looking parts. Joe
