Triumph TR6 - webers

Hi all,
One question. How can I clean and polish the body of my DCOE weber carbs? They will soon arrive and they don't look too good.
Thanks.

Kypros,
Don't know about Webers, but here's a shot of one of my CD175 ZS, powder coated. Worked well.

Here's the photo that failed to load. An alternative is to clean thoroughly with lacquer thinner, wash well with soap and water and polish with Autosol.

Thanks Doug,Here where I live they never heard of ultrasonic cleaning or powder coating, so I will have to polish them myself, let alone re-built them with the right jets,as most most mechanics here thing that a weber is something you BBQ with.Thank god for internet.

Kypros,
Now that you mention it..."I got me one of them Weber Bar-B-Q too!! Powder Coating is easy. Just find an old electric oven, not one in which food will ever be prepared again. A pizza oven is great, but any will do that'll reach around 400 Degree F and a ample air supply. Eastwood sales a small electic compressor good for most jobs. You'll also need a way to clean and degrease the object too. Media blasting is my choice, but you can chemically clean and prep the object for PC. Google Eastwood and get one of their catalogs if at all interested. You may even find others willing to pay you to do their stuff!! Good luck with whatever path you choose.

Thanks Doug, I think I'll choose a simple way of cleaning and polishing,as I will only do it once.
