Nice progress. What was your clean-up process on the wheels and tires?
Bill
Thanks for asking Bill!
Wheels...Napa Auto Parts aluminum cleaner than lots of wet sanding with both maroon & then gray Scotch Bright. I also buffed the outer rim on a buffing wheel.

Tires...lots of cleanings with Westley's white wall cleaner & stiff nylon brush then applied Meguiare's Endurance tire gel. BTW Same process for the front shock boots.

Thanks for the inspiration. I got my tires cleaned-up and they look great. The wheels have been all cleaned after trying various media in the blast cabinet. I need to find a good way to get them to the natural die cast finish which is what I believe they were originally. Next, I need to find a new
60 tooth sprocket or fix my old one - the teeth are worn to nubs.
