I removed the rust and adhesive and there are almost no scratches on them. I should have them finished this weekend….. I got luckystripp them and then start sanding the shells with 600 grit and then again with 800 grit and then again with 1000 and on and on until you get to 2500grit or 3000 grit, Make sure you have sanded all the scratches out of them and then take some soft cut rubbing compound and polish them with a rotary car buffer. They should shine right up and all the rust would have of course been eliminated early in the sanding process. Or just rewrap them to look however you desire.
