Pulled the aluminum corners I got from Chris the other day. They still have the material data printed on them. What would you do? Sand or remove this and leave them raw (my preference). Or would you paint them? What would remove this print?

Once you paint you will have to repaint. I’d leave them raw. Unfortunately mine were powder coated and immediately stared peeling. I’m touching them up on a regular basis.

Is the data the blue ink stamping or engraved. Having a hard time visualizing.

The ink printing will clean up. Mine are raw and approx 8 yrs old now. If, I had a "do over", I'd coat them with "Shark Hide". I believe eastern makes the product.

Any decent solvent will clean off the print. Can’t wait to see them.

I used goo gone on mine to get the ink off. They do start to oxidize over time. I’d recommend the shark skin spray as well.
