So I've bought a 2nd hand quarq s975 which has suffered some crankarm rub. the crankarms are now all black with the decals having been rubbed off. functionally ti works great but aesthe tically my bike looks abit strange with an entirely black crank ( it has sram red black chainrings mounted.) and it's a far cry from the K force crank it replaced.

Is there any way to spruce up a crank which looks abit tired? Maybe replacemnt crank decals, colored chainring bolts?

I would just leave it personally. I am not a fan, once again, just personally, of coloured chainring bolts and with that version of the quarq I believe it may affect your calibration and it to be returned to the factory as the torque value of the new chainring bolts will be slightly different. It will be tricky to find some replacement S950 decals but there are other "SRAM" decals on ebay. Good luck.

It's got s950 arms but a riken spider, so changing chainring bolts wont affect calibration.
