I was pretty nervous yeah :lol: but the worst that could happen is I'd have to remove the anodising and be back where I started but down 40 quid... Worth a go I thought. Hardest bit is applying the logo dead straight.

agree with everyone else, top work :)
are you going to somehow protect them if you ride them? heel rub would kill that logo pretty quick!

you should bung all that on the cook bros crank thread (pun intended ;) on mtbr.com VRC forum bt.w. :)

They'll not see hard riding in all weathers anymore but they will get ridden and this did occur to me, do you have any suggestions?
I'm usually not too fussy abotu parts looking 'used' but having spent time getting them back to looking good its like new bike syndrome where you dread the first scratch :lol:

works well on flat-ish surfaces, I use it on my M970 cranks for the same reason. you might just get away with it on e-cranks as the surface isnt too rounded, doesnt work on cbr or rsrs tho

Details here:
http://www.mansfield-anodisers.co.uk/

email them a pic of the part for a rough estimate, they may give a revised estimate once they have the part in there hands and see if theres any polishing work that needs doing.

Thanks for the address Steve! Do you have any of the reverse decals left?

Or if Gil reads this, could I get a set from you please??

I fancy doing this to pair I have and get them finished in Green!
