Best thing for greasing Record BB?

I usually use copper slip/grease but I'm not sure if this is actually suitable, particularly with there being a carbon section.

Any suggestions?

Where\'s me jumper?

    for the bearings or the threads?

    I am guessing the threads there is a carbon spacer on the old square taper bb's...

    I've never disassembled it completely, I usually remove it in one piece, give it a clean and put a spread of grease on it.

    It's a brand new BB, square taper.....I'm asking because the two-three year old one I've just replaced looked and felt awful- it was chipped all over and really worn out even though I'd taken care to clean it and grease it periodically. I want to keep this one in prime condition

    Thanks again.

    Gosh this is better than me, mine is five years old and needs replacing, never took care of it either.
