    A PX10 newbie has some basic questions for the Francophiles

    I gave into my OCD and found a PX10 to restore. The frame will need considerable cosmetic TLC. I'll remove all the components and clean, relube and rebuild everything.

    What are the best cleaners to remove 40 years old road grime from the paint? What brushes can be used without harming the paint?

    What chemicals can be used to prevent additional rust on the exterior?

    What paint can be used for touch-up? The frame is blue.

    What polishes and waxes are recommended?

    What is the maximum tire size? Will any 700x32 fit? Is this size tire too tight, depending on the model of the tire?
