This is a very elementary problem for most of you, but i'm relatively new to this game and this is my first campy crank ever.
1a. How do i remove the center bolt from the a record strada crank to get my crank-puller in? - none my sockets are narrow enough to get at the bolt. i don't really want to shave my current socket down b/c i don't have the type of tools to do it.
1b. will i need a special crank-pull for the job once i get the bolt out?
2. I have this fork. i'm 99% sure it was full chrome at one time. the problem, is that it is currently painted white. I'm sure this has been covered extensively, but what is the best way to go about stripping the paint off without damaging the potential chrome underneath? i.e., what kind cheap easy to find product would you use? It is not a rattle can paint job - but that is all i know. and yes, i can see the rust poking through the white paint... hope it isn't too bad.
