    Does anyone know of any products/ways to get 20v quads looking fresh and un tarnished... besides degreaser and wire wheels...?
    there is too many hard to reach places for a wire wheel.

    Can they be acid dipped? or are there parts that would not handle this so well on them?

    Just want them looking clean as possible, my efforts so far fall short of what I want.... thinking of painting them also so they defiantly need a better clean...

    Cheers for any worthy suggestions

    acid dip as in hot tank?. Wouldnt recommend it

    I suppose sandblasting is an option but would require them to be stripped bare.

    yeah I was pretty skeptical on acid dipping them, but wasn't sure as I have never had anything done this way, so not sure on whats capable etc. . .
    Thats the other thing, I want to keep them as one only removing the vac lines and sensors ect (non metal parts)

    if degreaser doesn't work then petrol won't um, try brake cleaner, fuckin harsh stuff, if there's any dirt on them it'll get it off

    Sandblasting worked really well for me

    mine were only partly dissassembled, it should be fine just removing all the vac lines and sensors as you had planned.

    plastic media blasting or soda blasting both work great and wonr need them to be stripped down
    the dyno pull to 300rwkw

    BT20v is making 300rwkw like i said i would without nitrous so now its time for some spray and see if she will run a 10s or less
