today i have mostly been making my recent purchase of some M952 cranks look purdy :lol:

outer face paint/ano was pretty well worn away so i finished the job lol
gave it a brushed rather than polished finish to them, and nitromorsed the rest of the paint off which leaves a rather nice gun metal colour behind.

they now look a bit like the M975 series cranks. (well they do to me :P)

next question would be.

which XTR decal to get.

do i go for an M900 style (smaller but the same design as 95x) http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/SHIMANO-XTR-M900- ... 35af87a128

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/shimano-XTR-mount ... 3c9ec011c4 (these are apparently available in other sizes)

all the sellers on ebay say they can do them in custom sizes, so it's all about which version and what look the decal comes in.


i quite like the M900 one myself, small & understated.
