Mmm, bit of araldite and quick polish
... think it's the original BB, it was running fine but I like to make sure that I can get these things in and out easily and look how it ended up?!
Yeah, my last resort was to send it off for a new BB shell and paint but don't think I could justify the cost - it's only an old saracen e-stay thing - so thought 'right, lets get the hammer out!' The cups were a bit of a pain too, careful cutting and prising, only slight damage to threads and outer edges of BB shell, but this has been sorted by lbs, now the proud owner of a new BB with more grease* than my local chippy!
Then one day you find, 10 years have got behind you ....
