Baking anodizing can change the color of the dye used, usually works best on type I or II. You can either do it in an oven or with a torch but in either case you need to strip it down to metal parts only (no lens, switch, driver, o-rings, or anything else adversely affected by ~450F).

Hmm, kewl!

Any way to tell beforehand what the change would be? Is it usually from black to tan? Reminds me of Cerakote, which’d be pretty awesome. Big Smile

Kind of a gamble on what will result. Some lights do not get changed to the same color on all parts. I did a S2 Hard Oxygen glossy black and it was awful. Ended up getting stripped and polished. Tried another S2+ in blue and it had all Crackle looking bezel and off color parts. The M2 Convoy in glossy turned out well, pics above.

I have a few already, including the S41S plain SS. This one has the looks of the S41S without the weight.
Empty at the moment though. Pondering what to put on the Tpad Quad board. Got a scratch on the bezel taking this one apart so it got stripped. Serious glue on the latest versions, just a heads up.

Wait for a deal on it. I have paid as little as $30 for one. $32-34 is normal deal from BG. If I see something I will LYK.

No problem,
Best deal on S41S is on the first page of the original thread. $38 with code
Astrolux S41S Quad Nichia 219B/ CREE XP-G3 1600LM

I polished the aluminum S41, pictured above, to get the look of the S41S without the weight.
