No, it will harm and soften the paint —

Purple degreaser is even worse.

Best solution in the US cleaner is HD Dawn dish soap, warm water, then afterwards while still wet — a toothbrush.

For bare aluminum — SG is fine. 

I use stronger solvents and thinners for all steel, copper, aluminum, chromed, and alloy parts. 

Any plastic parts such as crank knobs, drag knobs, spools, etc. — just dish soap.

And, caution must be used when using flammables in a US cleaner (separate glass uncovered container, clear and clean area, basic safeguards, etc.).

If not confident or sure — do not attempt it.

I have been doing this for over 20 years with no issues — however, I am as careful with the process and cleanup as I was when I first started using the US cleaner.  No shortcuts, proper care and storage of solutions, clean up each day, etc..

Many times with solvents like lacquer thinner, or mineral spirits — if the time allows, I will just soak the parts overnight — then US clean the next day.  Mostly don’t have the time to do this though —

Self-worth is how you value yourself. It’s not based on what others think of you or the things you have (or haven’t) accomplished—it comes from within. But it’s easy to forget that our worth isn’t determined by outside forces -- each of us sets our own price.
