I was thinking about painting an anodized V-Rod, yellow, maybe yellow.
Can it be done without a lot of prep?

I asked about painting anodized in a post last week and the response was it just needed to be sanded like any other surface and painted.

Anodizing can be painted over and is a great surface prep prior to painting provided it is not sealed completely - which in our case it probable is since there is no other finish on it. The other problem is completely removing the wax and other surface contamination. Wipe it down real good with a solvent like MEK or Acetone and then lightly scuff sand it and it should work out okay.

Oh man I read that and got super excited, was going to say "You don't have to paint, I'll trade you my brand new yellow skins!" and then I realized what was going on.

You guys suck! :angeldev:

snicker snicker....

You might be able to get some color matched bags to go with the new color on the skins.

Oh.. And my shiny avatar is cooler than yours!

are you really thinking about painting yours or just trying to get lux fired up?

If your thinking about it, I wouldn't I would buy another set that has paint and paint it to your liking as the tins are not alum. any more and with people painting there ano tins I believe they will be the collectors item down the road

Why would I ever try to get lux fired up? He is such a nice fellow.

(Thank you for your guidance. I will file it for future reference in case I ever get anodized skins.)

Lil,
You better talk to Kelly, you are now number 1 on Lux's list. Kelly will probably thank you for taking him off of her back.

I've painted my anodized set after my accident .

you'll have to get it down to the bare aluminum and then use a special etching primer before you spray the paint.
I used oven cleaner to get the anodization off...worked great.

Cheers

Joe
