I've been making some headway on my Ron Kit/Speedwell project bike, and could use some opinions re aesthetics. Long story, short: I polished a set of Dura Ace cranks but the flutes have pitting which I would like cover with some paint fill. (Btw, I now know that aerosol oven cleaner removes anodizing much faster than oven cleaner from squirt bottles. ) I originally planned to use just red highlights here & there, but then I had the idea of playing off the world champion color bands on the head badge by filling in the flutes on the crank spider arms. Now I'm second guessing myself, and need some help deciding if it's Hot or starting to look like a Clown Bike.
Another option is to fill the flutes with either all black or all red. For what it's worth, the seat post also has flutes I could fill, and I plan to use these wheels with red fill on the inside of the hub flanges.
