Can GPV-1 alloy parts be re anodized?

I was wondering if the option alloy GPV-1 parts can be anodized gold? Do anybody know what kind of alloy they are made of, is it aluminum? Was thinking of stripping some of the parts and trying to anodize them Gold, anybody out there try it? I know some alloys wont anodize.

The parts are aluminum and are anodized already. They can be stripped and redone by the plating company. Keep in mind this strips off material and changes tolerances. If you use Easy Off Oven Cleaner you can strip the color off but the metal can pit and be ruined so take care.
Maybe best to let a pro do it and put together a full parts batch to change the color all at once, cheaper too.
