Hi one and all

Im new here and will soon to be the proud owner of an rg350dx, it has no pickups so have brought some second hand v7 v8 and s1 pickups.. they have turned up and the pole pieces look either filthy or painted but the paint has half come off.

My questions are.. should the pole pieces be metal or black coloured? What can i clean them up with? (Im guessing wire wool or emery paper?) And can i paint the poles with acrylic model paint?

Thanks in advance
get a green scotch brite pad (the green side of a dish sponge) and sand them down). Yes you can paint them and have no issues if that is what you want.
