Black brake pads, White Mags!

What's the best "stuff" or method to removing ugly black brake pad wear from a WHITE mag?

There is a bit on the bike pictured, but I have an old redstone that look AWFUL with a lot more brake wear on it.  Thoughts?  Suggestions?

With all due respect, and remember I'm sayin' with all due respect, that idea ain't worth a velvet painting of a whale and a dolphin gettin' it on.

Soft scrub for the rim and a razor blade held at an angle scrapping backwards for tough areas where the brake rub is. wink

Re: Black brake pads, White Mags!

I tried magic eraser and the elbow grease required was too much. I am lazy and looking for an easy way out. Soft scrub next. I might try 0000 steel wool and some sort of cleaner.

Yes, I have a lot of posts. I'm glad you care so much
