  • Painting anodized aluminum

    I have some clear anodized motorcycle parts that I want to paint, do I need to remove the anodizing first, if so what product do you recommend, if not how should I prepare the surface for paint and do I need a special primer?

    You don't need to do anything special to paint it. Just paint it.
