    This is something I've been meaning to ask for a while:

    Anyone else got a big letter B written on the inside of each wheel? Obviously done at the factory. If so how the hell do you remove it? Its written on in some kind of textured ink. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Hey Al!

    How's it going?

    Try methylated spirit or isopropyl alchohol, that should shift it.

    Al,

    Electric sander should do it /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif. You can borrow my Dads /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif.

    Thanks chaps.

    I was thinking of using a chisel! No pic's unfortunately.

    I'll have to try some different methods in spring when the weather is warmer.

    It is good stuff but I noticed the price of this £9.99 per litre on the site.

    Costco do 5 litres for about the same price or even less.

    Time for a group buy, I think /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Ram, cheers, but that was the first thing I tried. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif Didn't remove a single bit of it.

    I know its not important really, but in summer I do clean the inside of the alloys, after which the big letter B is visible - not good if I want to enter any concours (?spelling?) events this year.

    Ram,

    That sounds perfect. There's a supplier near work too.

    Cheers

    T Cut is similar too, the metallic one is less abrasive than the std one.

    Failing that try a Leeflex disk on a 5" angle grinder /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Cheers,

    Jon.
