Why not just use aggressive polish on them?
Looks like a good job with the paint mate. I think great_kahn means a polish to remove the paint from the raised letters, it will then be back to metal and look great against the new red. I would replace the bleed nipple covers too!They are well pitted so polish will do nothing for them. If I had the ££ I'd replace them.
I can't say I like the finish either. The colour looks wrong as well.Am I the only one that thinks the look poor? Dont like them at all esp the colour. As mentioned above........def sand the paint of the seat sport bit.
