And I found out the rims are Dunlop (AP?) so that looks like a rebuild around them in on the cards

Gentle clean later and all back together. Need to find some Fibrax pads now.
Aim overall here is clean, repair, only replace as a last resort and with as close to the original as possible (well, rather as funds and availability allows lol)

If you have vinegar, it works as well. As does Coca-Cola, lemon juice, orange juice. So there are options.
Oxalic acid also so rhubarb leaves.
 

Peachy!

Pulling up a chair.
Good to see a sympathetic renovation every now & then.

Vinegar, by coincidence, was what was in the mayo jar that kicked off this whole branch line of alternative cleaning product discussions… so I think we’re now back on track.
In other news, these are on the way.
