    Polishing my nuts

    Smiley Well, I've come to thinking that my wheels are looking a bit scruffy with the bolts rusting a bit, so was considering cleaning them up a bit. Anyone think this is odd? Anyone done it before? What's the best way to clean them up a bit?

    Which ever way you find to polish your nuts, I hope they shine just the way you want them to.

    Well its a good way to spend the time...Smiley  I just don't want to use something too abraisive and hence cause my nuts to be irreversibly scarred.

    Yes, I can see that you would want to avoid that.

    Are they particularly large set or are they your everyday run- of- the -mill nuts?

    Why not get some nuts that will get the chicks screaming? Smiley

    Shiny high grade stainless steel nuts! Smiley

    Reminds me of a joke:

    Guy walks into a bar.

    Barman says "Sir, did you know you have a steering wheel protruding from your trousers?"

    "Yes, I know" says the man. "It's driving me nuts!" Smiley

     

    But seriously, I do want to clean my nuts.

    @Bluelines: Oooh, now if only I could get the Porsche crest stamped on them....

    Haha, thread of the month!   If I ever find myself in a pub in England I hope you, Dreamcar and John H are in there. Back to the nuts, I wish I had some tips for you but I have to warn you, I  neglected my nuts for years and now they are gone,  (sold my car).

    @DC - Well as long as you don't invite me out the carpark after lunch to show me yours, eh?

    @Stradale - Very nice! But I was looking forward to a nice couple of hours buffing mine up outside the house, nodding politely to my neighbours.

    @Dr j - Grin. Thanks! And yeah, Maybe we should get DC, Rennteam South of England Embasador to arange something. 

     @throt - Now that's a challenge! How about an action shot?

    I can see that, as usual, my friends cannot help me, and I'm just going to have to learn how to do this by myself, fumbling and making mistakes until I'm a professional. I just hope there's something on the internet to guide me....Smiley

    Now that would make a nice business card:

    Hmmmmmm... Titanium nuts? Neah.... Too LIGHT! Smiley

    Heavier nuts also have the tendency to be bigger Smiley

    There is no try. Just do.

    Re: Polishing my nuts

    Well, I have to say, despite meeting up with DC at the weekend, my nuts are still a tad rusty.

    What I COULD do with though is those automatic shotgun things that Bond had on his Aston. Seagulls are making an awful mess of the paintwork at the moment.
