Picked up a Helix second hand and the decals on it were trashed. I used acetone to remove the decals but could still see the outline of where the decals used to be on the frame. The finish on the bike is either Matte or Industrial Mill but I believe Matte. I'm verifying from the previous owner
My question is, I've been using the 7440 scotch brite recommended by Lynskey and it looks like it scratching the frame ever so slightly. I can see where the difference in finish where the stickers used to be is no longer there but I'm just wondering if I'm getting to a point where I'm going to have to have it sandblasted again or something? Does it just take a lot of elbow grease with the scotch brite? do I need a finer "grit" to follow up with?
