Hi Stu,

Sorry for the delay in replying - i forgot about the pics!!

These are before and after pics - it, hopefully, should be apparent which is which!!! A lot of time and effort - i have used steel wool and WD 40, Autosol and an abrasive pad for the brake surfaces to remove old tyre lever marks - at a guess i would say the front rim which is all i have been working at has taken 2 days so far but it is almost finished. The rear might be a quicker job as i now know what i am doing.

The 'after' pics were taken a while ago and more work has been done on the front rim - i will post the finished wheels on my build thread when i eventually get them finished - viewtopic.php?f=23&t=228672

Good luck with your build,

Richard
