Re: Powdercoating wheels

Hi, a tip for all exposed polished metal parts that old cleaner lady's have been using for yonk's on Brass door knockers ect. 1st polish them rub a candle on it and the rub in. Stops the air getting at the surface, so stays good for much longer. I do it on all my polished Ally parts on all my bikes.
