Anyone have any advice/done this before? I have a zipp stem that I'd love to stealth, but had a few concerns over sanding too far -- removing through the clear coat and scratching the alloy, is this a stupid idea?

Good idea. And pretty easy to do as well.

:) any past photos? i'm a bit more hesitant on this than on carbon just due to the nature of aluminum finish being less forgiving
