Not sure if it will make them brittle or not so test on a part that might get destroyed.
I spent a ton of time on a set of Nylite wheels & never got them anywhere this nice.
Please report any findings.

First, you have to SUFFER through a goddam joe biteme ad! The cleaning part is good. The brittleness can be helped by boiling the nylon for a little while like we used to do for nylon R/C model airplane props. A tank annealed by boiling will be less likely for the mounting tabs and hose barbs to break off. Add Rit dye to the water, boil the part and you can dye the nylon whatever color you want. I still have purple snapper fuel line clamps in the shop from when I built the Swoopster. TJ
