    Default Ano removal on carbs?

    Can anodizing be removed/redone on metering blocks/base plates on carbs?

    It will ALSO remove several thousandths of the base aluminum. Anodizing is a 2-way "surface" coating. While it builds up a couple thou on the surface, it ALSO imbeds a couple thou into the material.

    To completely remove anodizing, you will remove base material.

    Holleys aren't anodized, they're plated, and the plating has changed throughout the years. I believe it used to be gold cad or irridite, now it's something else..I think yellow chromated zinc. You can buy kits to re-do it, or you can send them to Holley and they'll re-do it. There are also some spray coatings that are close in color for carb restorations, like from Eastwoods. If you leave the carb in carb cleaner too long, it'll take the plating off. V8 juice would probably do it faster...I know it strips the bluing right off a gun barrel....
    Do a google search on "Holley carb plating"

    Scott, I believe he is talking about the billet stuff. Shaun, If your just looking to get rid of the color I would only strip the outside.

    Bob, did you lose some to theft?...Just wondering........If so, what else was stolen that we might see out there for sale?..........I will not knowingly buy stolen parts or tools, (or anything else I "think" might be "hot"). I will buy and call the LEs and assist in the prosecution of the scumbag thieves

    lol, what you mean you didnt want them redone hot pink???? No i would never do anything like that with out asking you, i like the red on those.

    I found some carbs in the spam section that had purple blocks and base plate. I'm over them though, too much $$ and the guy is firm... plus the color...
