Well, I got my glass fibre pens out, and neither had any glass fibre in them. Then, I couldn't find any spare refills so I ordered some and am waiting for them to arrive in the next couple of days. So it's not high on my lost of priorities until those arrive, then it will be again.got it, even though it's really the only question you asked in your first post, and on post #12 you were going to get your glassfibre pen out to clean the wheels... I was just curious if you had done it, and what were the results. It just generated so much interest, but not for the OP ha ha!
You didn't bug me, Greg, so no need for apologies. What did bug was that I have two glass fibre pens and some refills but could only find the "empty" pens. However, see update post below.Sorry, I was not meaning to bug you. So far, cleaning the "shipping gunk" has worked well for me on these wheels. I agree, the fiberglas scratch brush is a staple tool, I have learned the hard way to keep refills!
Best of luck with it, normally these wheels will "polish up" fairly well, when cleaned they will look almost like solid metal, but not quite... keep scraping them until shiny.
