• aged/beater look without causing any damage to the steel.

    But rust damages steel...

  • Old 1200 grit is essentially polish, there's still a hefty amount of brown paint under the black. I've left black around the areas it'll most likely get marked by D-lock or railings, thin paint gets scuffed, reveals brown, looks old and shit to a thief.

    Only significant bare metal areas already had paint chips exposing metal.

    Rubbed back, Genolite, POR 15 clear, think 4130 steel can cope.
