    Default Cleaning Ambrosio rim etchings?

    Don't laugh too hard, but I'm struggling to get the etchings on my Nemesis rims to look really sharp and clear. When I received the rims that either the etching wasn't done well or there was some kind of "stuff" on them that discolored the etching a bit -- just didn't pop out bright white like many photos of the rims that I've seen.

    I tried scrubbing the etching with a toothbrush and acetone, and that seemed to help a bit but it's still not really crisp. Any recommendations on how to get it looking really sharp and classy?

    Ha Ha Ha - stop looking at your rims. Nemesis rims are best when they're spinning and with layers of dirt from a full season of use.
