Today I picked up a pretty original Parkpre Team 925 which I intend to refurb over time. However the frame is steel that has been TI platted but there are little rust spots all over the frame. The trouble is wire wool will remove the TI platting taking the frame back to steel & the metal polish I have is not strong enough to remove the spots.
Question is, does anyone know of a way of removing the rust spots & conserving the TI plating?
Do I wire wool the whole frame back to a polish finish & go with that look for the rebuild?
Answers on a postcard please........
