Hey PJ,
first...hope the claw is getting closer to good, what a crap pride you've been on there.

What did you mean when you said plastidip spray doesn't work? What problem did you have?
I've used it a little previously and had decent results on hand tools and of all things a set of engine hoses ( customer bike, I was paid too much money to NOT) and it came out ok. Is it just on levers or elsewhere that you had problems?

It was on levers, not mine and possibly not roughed up or cleaned well enough.
 Seemed a bit too much like wrapping a busted balloon around lever.
 The dip is thicker than the spray

HAHAH...busted balloon.....
Yeah it definitely takes more than one application from a rattle can. For quick build-up dip is surely the way to go.

PJ, question on the hub turning. Front looks relatively easy however my rear has a stepped down section on one of the fins. Any ideas how this could be turned?

Also any thoughts in whether this would affect the hub strength?

I wouldn't remove the 'fins' on a rear drum but I have removed the ribs between them (pages 5 & 6)
 There isn't any way to make the hub 'look good' (except mine  ;) )

That's what I meant PJ, the cross sections and round smaller fins in the hub centre. I was keen to mill these down in the front and rear like you have done. Are there any concerns with affecting hub strength?

Removing the cross piece shouldn't cause any problems and is real easy to do with a small round file (or 3/16" burr in Dremel)

What's the problem with smoothing out the centre on the rear like you did on the front PJ?
