My '72 TR-6 appears to have some kind of painted finish on it that looks pretty crappy after 37 years. What do I use to either, a) remove the finish or b) repaint/finish it ?


TIA

Hi there,

I believe that the conical brakes should be bare alloy (unpolished), although I know that some rear brake plates where painted black. Personally I would strip them back and give them a good polish. It takes a bit of work but the final result looks fantastic. There's a guy on this forum from Brisbane (Aus) who has posted a few photos of his hubs and they look bloody good.

Hi Tiger,

I've had the front and rear plates polished . I also had the front and rear brake arms, springs, etc chromed. Looks great!!

Aviod painting them as they eventually get chipped and fade, then look terrible. RR
