My efforts to renew the anodizing on the 250 grille have led me to this:
To do it correctly the grille must be " bright dipped" which is a mixture of acids.
There are quite a few companies that do anodizing but few that bright dip
You should insure whoever does it has a good reputation for their process

Two questions:
Does anyone know of anyone that does it..correctly?
Is there an alternate process that looks the same ( e.g.polish and clearcoat)?

It's has been chemically stripped-polishing is almost complete.

I redid my grill by polishing the shiny areas then masking them off and lightly sanding the black areas and spray painting them with satin black. I'm not a stickler for "it has to be original" but I do think it turned out quite nice.

Doug,

There was a similar discussion on the TR4 Forum. I recommend Mothers mag and aluminum polish. (see post #22 for photos before and after)
