Momo Prototipo - all shined up
Yeah…. I had the wheel installed for less than 24 hours before I ripped it back off, put it in the vise, and spent the next FIVE HOURS polishing it up. That dull silver finish was just not doing it for me. Action was called for.
It's not THAT shiny, not chrome levels of shiny, but it matches the rest of my stuff.
For anyone thinking about doing this, you’re in for a long day. I buffed off the silver paint with a dremel wire polishing wheel (figuring this part out took about 2 of those hours) and then I polished with various grits of sandpaper. The spoke metal was very rough. It required much work to get smooth and then more to get polished. I went from 120 grit all the way up to 1000 grit before I started polishing with the dremel again.
The wheel looks much more vintage with the polished finish than with the silver paint. That silver stuff just needed to go. Anyway, it was a lot of work, but worth it
