yep,good job you have done there. a very interesting read all the way thru.
maybe inspired me to try a wheel build sometime!
Definitely agree. I'll be doing my first wheel build soon (all I need are the spokes now!) and I'll be following your instructions
I followed your advice on stripping anodising today too - here's a before and after of my RF Turbines. My first attempt at using caustic soda and definitely not my last:
Anyway, back to the thread. Great build. Great job. Great advice for people like me to follow in future! Thanks
Cool man cheers, those turbines look stunning
Funny how the paint of your logos resisted caustic soda just my rim's logos did!
It's a cool side effect, but I guess if you want them gone from something you'd have to bear that in mind and wet and dry/Nitromors them away or something...
There is a dude on here who sells spokes for a great price, I get mine of t'bay
