shimano xtr fc-m952 crankset restoration, vol. 2
I`ve got another chance to make a greatful restoration of the Shimano XTR FC-M952 crankset. The cranks themselves were in very poor condition (as usual after years of riding), thus I didn`t have much work to remove old painting (already have a lot of skills how to do it). After intensive brushing and cleaning the cranks I wanted to apply anodization, however, I decided to use a new coating - teflon. I had discussons with some coating makers and I chose XYLAN 8840. Very durable coating with deep black colour and a little abrasive surface. A new "Shimano XTR" logo has been lasered directly to teflon. Self extracting dust caps have been re-anodized in black. All completed with a set of original 4-arm chainrings (all three in very good condition) and with original Shimano bolts.
