Dia compe mx1000 Restoration Before and After (silver)

I bought a mx1000 stamped 82 off ebay for under 30 because it was ugly.  I ordered a new weimann adjuster and some restoration decals for the calipers. 
      This is how it turned out.  No polishing.  Just used Draino crystal / Deanodizing and put new parts on it.  New bolt, new decal, new pad, and paint penned in the mx stamped on the caliper.  Thats it. 

5 for decal
28 for caliper
25 for weinmann adjuster
Total $ 58.00

Heres the transformation.  -

Looks impressive for just a quick dip and no elbow grease, wish a lot other things were that easy
