Re: Restoration by Puccio from Tuscany

Sorry, I forgot.....

Also the Carbs must be restored.

Where I work there is ultrasonic bath, this is the better solution for wash the carbs.
Before to insert the carbs is necessary put the special liquid in the water and to warm

before the bath...

After the bath I saw the the color is changed.
Some halo of blue/purple is possible to see now.

after a short pass with special ultra fine sponge (steel), the color is changed to turn in new this...

This is a Puccio's reply, posted the last month.

As we see, the body carb has received a chemical ultrasonic bath and, after the bruscing surface treatment by Puccio, the raimbow/iridescent was lost.

I forgot about that post. My carb's may come up better than I thought! I'll have to see if I can find someone with an ultrasonic bath locally. Thanks!
