I second Arfon on that.

Electrolyse is not difficult and very efficient. If it can help you, I made a post on my build blog about that.

See the pictures of the rear hubs at the end of the post, it is "miraculous".

Bye.

I can recommend Bilt Hammer's Deox-c.

Seen a review in a mag ages ago which put me onto the stuff.

Just mix it with hot water 20:1 then leave the part in over night and it comes out perfect.

My favourite paint is Plasticote satin black, sprays on nice and has a very tough finish.

I used their Deox gel (same stuff, but it's a paste for big bits you can't submerge) and I found it really good.
