Cleaning 870c/YZ10 magnesium parts

Post by Bormac »

Hello fellow Yokomo gurus.
I want to bring back the stock bulkheads and hubs etc.. for these early dogfighters to like new. Im seeking opinions on wether sand or particle blasting is recommended to strip the ugly ageing and get these surfaces back to new? My only concern is that the process might in some way degridate these parts.

Has anyone got experience with cleaning these items back to like new?

Thank you- Jason

the best method I have used(and will use in the future) is light glass beading. I also think the magnesium should be waxed or oiled afterwards to prevent oxidation. that I haven't really tried yet, but plan to. if you use glass beads and don't focus down tight with lots of air pressure, you won't remove any of the edges of the material.

I've got a cabinet setup with glass bead. Drop me a line if you need this done. I can slip them in when I'm doing some of my other stuff...
