While I am still a brand snob, I do not have any qualms with using these. I would like to touch up the spots where the paint has flecked off to prevent the rust from coming back, but I will probably just stick to oiling them regularly.

Weight Plate Refurbishing
I recently picked up some CAP iron plates. I got them with some loadable dumbbell handles and figured it would be a good exercise in cleaning up plates. I started with PB Blaster and then 3 in 1 oil. After letting them dry, I touched up the lettering with a silver sharpie. Not vintage, but I was quite pleased with myself.
