Re: The Best of BMX Restoration

You can use paint stripper without damaging  them. Then you might have to lightly sand them. Then bleach them to get the black spots out.
Make sure to protect any metal parts with Vaseline to stop corrosion  from the bleach.

No more media blasting at this time.
I am always glad to give advice any time!!!
