The crud on the bottom is resistant to everything I’ve thrown at it will have to try and lightly sand it to get it off

Not a bad score (for free?).
You should start a build thread over in the 1998+ section 👍🏻

So while I was lightly sanding the crud of the frame I decided to bare the entire frame and polish it. I’ve always liked the Ross and Mongoose chrome frames from the eighties and figure this will check that box for me. We’ll see how it goes.

Well from 120 grit to 2000 its been a bit of a marathon. It does look good and weighs nothing
