View Full Version : Remove/Alter red accents?

07-18-2018, 02:17 AM
Hey guys,

I just purchased this hilt and need some advice.

IMHO it just looks weird with that shiny red accents, so I'd like to remove/change that.
I'd be ok with it if the hilt would be heavily weathered.

I was told that when I use some kind of stripper the anodizing is ruined.
Sending it back to the original creators, to get the coating removed and the saber weathered costs around 500$.

What would be your suggestion? Is there no other way?

Just trying to get other opinions before paying that much :sad:

It would cost that much because all the electronics would have to be removed and re-installed. And that would be your best bet, unless you’re ready to live with the look of the hilt as-is.

Do you want to remove all of the red? It seems a bit odd to buy such a saber of you don't like it. Perhaps a better option would be to sell it and buy a more standard version, of which there are very many.

Pure acetone will remove most powder coating
