Hi, I'm new to the forum and just bought a lightly used Cinco. (Love it!!)

I'd like to replace the gouged up decals on my frame and the seatpost.

I'm assuming I can get them from Moots but, any tricks I should know before doing it?

Also, does anyone have any advice on polishing out scratches? I'm new to Ti.

Thanks.

Greg

Peel them off (little heat will help, hair dryer or heat gun), use some rubbing alcohol to get the **** off (maybe some Goo-Gone if extra thick) and reapply. Although I have a Cinco myself, it is my first shot-peened Ti frame and I think "any" buff-ing would probably "polish" more than erase. On polished frames, so extra fine steel wool and a little Pledge does the trick, not sure the result of this process on a shot-peened frame would be desirable. Guess you could experiment on the bottom of the BB shell.

I use a product called "Never Dull" on my Moots. You can buy it at automotive stores. It comes in a can, and I think they call it "wadding" or something like that. It's actually a wad of cotton-like material that has the product on it. It is for all metals and work great on Ti. I don't know if it will help with scratches, but it does a great job of cleaning it and making the finish look like new.
