I'd like to use an old Campy Record high flange hub. Unfortunately, it was badly "pitted".

60 grit sandpaper removed most of the pitting and any anodized finish it may have had. I'll work my way back to 1000 grit sandpaper and then use polishing compound.

Anybody know what to expect were I to use the hub in that condition?

And a few more questions:

Were Campy Record Hubs anodized? Do they need to be re-anodized? Anybody make home anodization equipment?
