Shining up rusty faded bolts?

Recommended Posts

Be nice to have an easy way rather than a wire brush.

I'm soaking some a vinegar tonight to see if that will work!

Any other ideas?

I'm just going to get on ebay and buy the nice "bolt kit" for my bike. It comes in a nice container with each one all shiny and labeled so it's perfect for organization when you are taking your bike apart (which I do after every time I ride) and also the kit is only like $40!!! Do it right my friend!

I have and old 86 RM125 that I rebuilt. All the bolts were rusty, now they're shiny new. I just used a wire brush drill attachment.

Wire wheel honestly is the best method for anything metal on the bike. Especially if you can hook it up to the air compressor. I used one on my pro platinum pipe on the cr250 and it cleaned all the grit and rust off in no time. Now it looks brand new.

The bolt kits at Cycle Gear sketch me out. Low-grade hardware. I'm kind of OCD about stuff like that, but I'd rather pay more for stuff that's more trustworthy. Even going to the junkyard with a bucket and an electric impact to strip Toyotas and Hondas works well.
