Yeah, if like a lot of acid rain gets on it. I once had a used blue Fly stem. I think it was an 07`. I took a wire brush to it, and found it was black b4 it was blue. I scraped off almost all of the paint, but I never repainted it. and it's still good, 2years later... I liked the look too much after i did that. gave it this old style paint brush look, only w/o the paint. kinda. haha idk you had to see it. it was rad!!

Paint Stripper doesn't take off Anodizing. You need a special acid bath for that.

it would be even cooler if she had on a white tshirt or better yet nothing...
Sanding off annodizing would suck.
The point of annodizing things is to make it tougher, stronger. And in the process the part gets a slight bit bigger. It mainly just makes it harder so have fun sanding it off haha.

Its not too hard to sand off, just annoying. And a raw stem is retarded, it's just roughed up aluminum color (silver).
