Apologies if this has been covered recently - a forum search didn´t throw up anything specific.
Is there a recognized ´best practice´for bringing old, but intact, brake and derailleur cables and housings back to life?
Mine are OK but could do with a bit of reviving. I plan to clean the cable with a bit of steel wool and then wipe clean with a solvent, and shoot some WD40 though the (empty) cable housing, then a couple of drops of sewing machine oil down the housing prior to posting the cable back through.
Thoughts? Sound OK?
TIA for any tips.
PS I realise I can buy new cables and housing, but that cuts into my beer fund.
