I went the tightarse option. Cleaned and painted the spokes and nipples clear. It's cold in the garage, brought them inside to dry.
My truing stand was also delivered today. Hopefully start assembly of wheel on the weekend.

Truing stand Axl did not fit in the front wheel bearings. Had to use some lateral thinking.

Happy with the way the wheels came up for a first time effort. Will attack the next bike build differently and use new rims and spokes.

For rusty old spokes and nipples you can clean the rust and zinc off with plain old white vinegar, just soak until you can scrub them clean, might take a day or two.

To protect them from rusting have a look at DIY zinc plating,  there's a ton on the web to read but stick to forum posts for a good overview and don't bother with buying a premade kit.

I'm stripping and replating all the hardware for my next bike,  its very cheap and really easy once you get the hang of it.  All of the ingredients are safe,  no chemicals you can't buy at a grocery or dollar store. (White vinegar, kosher salt, imitation vanilla extract) read up on it and give it a shot.
