How Would I Make My H5 Look Good?


#1

Hi, I’m thinking about taking the paint job off of my H5. What are some things I could do with it to make it look good, or will it look good just raw and unpolished? Also, I’m looking for methods that are as inexpensive as possible. If I don’t find any good things to do, I’ll probably keep the paint.

First of all… It’s not a paint job, it’s a chemical process known as anodizing.

Anyway, this process is very time consuming and if you really want to get it stripped I’d probably contact this guy: http://yoyoexpert.com/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=2631

If you need to know the exact process of stripping the ano off just let us know.

Yes, I’ve read that topic. Do yoyos play/grind well if they’re in a raw state like the 5*?

play well: yes. they’ll play exactly the same, assuming you don’t strip enough metal to make a noticeable weight difference in the halves.
grind well: Not a chance. Raw metal grinds horribly.

It’s opinion whether something looks good or not. I like some yoyos raw, some people don’t. If you don’t want to pay someone to re anodize/paint it, I wouldn’t strip the paint. Because getting a good paint job on it yourself is pretty hard and unless done well, could add vibe.

I wouldn’t touch it if it were painted by Brett Grimes.
