Hi

I couldn't upload a photo as it was to big?

They have minor surface rust and would probably polish up pretty good. Wondering what the 'done' thing was with regards to restoration.

post it on facebook, copy the facebook picture and post it on here. Facebook shrinks your pics!

Or for those that don't do facebook (like me) , change your camera setttings to reduce the pixel size? Crop it on your phone will also reduce it.

Cheers

i would chrome them but it is always worth giving them an oxyalic acid bath first and a polish to see how they come up..... :daumenhoch:
