Re: Black nuts

So I haven't lined all my sockets and wrenches with electricians tape. What's the best way to rejuvinate the appearance of those black preload adjusting nuts back to all black from black with the tacky edges-of-silver?

I'm highly embarassed.

Re: Black nuts

Line your sockets and wrenches with electrical tape and they won't fit - at least I wouldn't think so.

Anyway, I too put a couple marks on my preload adjusters as I dialed in my suspension. I simply used a black Sharpie to touch them up. Works like a charm.

Dude, I don't want anything to do with 'black nuts.'
