benolium, How did you strip the paint on the derailleur and cassette? What did you use to re-paint?

I've had a few requests on how to paint the parts so I thought I would share. It was fairly easy to do. I left everything on the bike to paint the parts. I cleaned the parts first, cranks, shifters, derailleur with simple green.
Tape off the area to paint with blue painters tape. I used electrical tape, since I was out of the good stuff.
I used Tester brand paint, (found at hobby shops or at Michaels craft store)
Small hobby brush, also found by the hobby paint
Apply 2 coats of paint, let dry between. Remove tape, clean up edges with a razor blade. Apply clear nail polish to finish.

For the Cassette, I sent it in to my local polisher to be sandblasted. It was then dipped into "some" unknown chemical to remove the rest of the red anodized paint.
