nope.

I left the cranks outside to the elements for the last week, one untreated and one covered in clear car wax.

Zero tarnishing to either crank 8)

And so today's first attempt is a RitcheyLogic Canti.

Started life with a very tired black finish (on the right of the pic) and 20 mins of hard graft has produced another licely polished finished. 8) 8)

Not sure if I can get the replacement decals, but tbh I'm not all that fussed...

Fantastic results from that kit Stefan! I hesitate to call it DIY-it looks very professional to me.

Hi Stefan,

What do you use as a mask and what is the abrasive medium. Great results you get.
