Custom S-Works Crankset

Postby Cam » Sun Sep 18, 2011 8:56 am

So I picked up an S-Works crankset of E-Bay for not too much and in the process of some sanding etc to change it up. Progress so far:

If anyone has some good sanding tips it would be greatly appreciated. Also thought I would have the chainring spider anodized so if anyone has any thoughts or feedback on this that would also be awesome.

Use lots of water and change the paper often. Should be a real quick job. Good luck!

I did the same thing with my Lightning cranks. Just sand them down. Wet sanding of course. Then apply clear.
