I used a wire wheel on a bench grinder for my pc pipe. Took the dark gray color right off.

must must must neutralize the acidity from the vinegar with a baking soda / water solution - otherwise it will continue to rust. I found this out the hard way trying to remove rust from a vintage tank....

What do you use for a scotchbrite wheel and where can they be purchased?
Ive looked all over for one that looks like it would work well and I continually come up empty.

They sell them in the body repair aisle of any auto parts store.

WD-40 after, either two or four-stroke. When the mud and dirt cakes on, wet it down and scrub it with scotchbrite when washing. Immediately coat in WD after washing. Don't let it get rusty and it won't ever be a hard job.

Mine was from working out at the gym. It took like 6 months to go away after that. I didn't bother me when I rode so I just ignored it for a while.

not ironically, mine is from the gym too, along with what I am convinced is a minor rotator cuff tear. I've since switched to rehab exercises for the shoulder, which is getting better, but the tennis elbow is annoying af.

It leaves millions of scratches, all of which combine to produce the sweetest-looking pipe EVAR.

Thai massage and it is painful as hell while they break up the tissue so the sheath can slide.
