To change from carbon steel to stainless steel is a process that has not been developed for the home user yet.

To change the color of the slide to a silver or other color, check out Duracoat or Alum-Hyde. Steps will include removing all parts of the slide. Preparation is the most important step followed by the knowledge of how to paint.

Are you sure he's just not wanting to change the slide to an aftermarket SS slide?

Just ask'n
