    Throttle cable elbows 77 z400

    I was going to get these re-plated but it appears that the cables donít come out. They have nylon sleeves in them as well.

    Any thoughts? - chrome paint?

    My first thought is new cables from Motion Pro.

    My second thought is nothing a blast cabinet and proper media can't fix right up.

    I thought that I had heard of a chrome like spray paint in a rattle can?

    A brass wire brush would remove all that rust in a NY minute.

    If this is a budget repair try this... It won't look like chrome but a few minutes in a bead blaster machine will make them have a an even color. Then shot some clear on them to help protect them from rusting.

    Tape the ends the best you can to keep the material out of the cable sliders.

    If this a like new restoration and you can buy new ones then you're in!

    He's the one I restored a month or so ago... the customer was amazed. I messed up by not taking any before pictures.

    Good Luck!
