Hi all, when i bought my car the guy was good enough to include a set of 175 triple su's, rebuild kits and even a book on rebuilding them. Now that i have the car RWC and registered i am looking to get the 202 (spare motor) in and i want to run the triples. My question is what is the best way to clean them up before i do anything else? As you can see the carbs and manifold look pretty crappy. Research has me looking at everything from soda blasting to CLR to Coke (the drink kind :D ) I'm sure some of you guys have travelled this road before.

Did you re-colour the webbers after the hydrablasting ? For that original look.

& yep hydrablasting is the only way to go.
