Searched and didn't find anything regarding this.

Anyone have any experience/knowledge on this?

I can see where it would create issue, but can also see it not causing any problems.

Go or no go?

i was just talking about this as one of my friends had his controlarms blasted and they did the inside of the cups. i think if they went lightly on it it shouldnt be an issue. i would forsure scotch brite the surface as smooth as possible before sliding a new one in.

Thats where i see it going wrong, some shops blast the hell out of stuff and the etch feels like 120 grit sand paper when done.

Ideally id try and get alum media blast on the arm, and then glass on the cup, but that sounds expensive and a bit of a hassle finding a shop to do that.

The cups on my arms look like they were submerged in saltwater so im in a bit of a pickle lol
