Theres some helpful information in that thread, alot about polishing your frame, which you have already done, and quite a bit about your wheels as well.
Twisted Logic stripped his wheels down not too long ago. Theres some pictures of it in this thread. Between him and several other of the members on here, they should be able to give you quite a bit of advice.
ya know the funny thing is the wheels on mt 2001 were already polished on the out side go figure the spokes were satin and I left them that way the resault was great I will put some pics up for you to c :blah :bs
