Just bought these off ebay, didn't realise they were gold, faint gold hue in pic which I ignored as a cast. Didn't mention gold in text. Of course now I look I can clearly see they are gold. Ho hum.Ho hum.

Make me an offer, they are in perfect nick, NOS, but I have no use for them:

You can wipe off the gold anodizing with oven cleaner.

What does this do to the surface? Does the oven cleaner stain the ali?

I have a blue Middleburn rear that I would like silver at some time and I don't want to bugger it up.
