    Here in a bit I'll take a pic of the compression release on each cylinder. He polished down I there as well. No visable signs of chrome left.

    Hope you can get the buttons back on the rotors! Hopefully chromer didn't thicken it too much.

    Who did you use for chrome? Someone you use often? Reason I ask is because I'm thinking soon I might just need a guy

    I used the shop in Cuba Mo. They were the only ones I could find that would plate aluminum. Next time I do small parts (Alu) I'm just gonna have Mike polish them. There is a place down here that does metal and they are really good. I'm happy with the results I got from the chrome shop in Cuba.

    There are several threads on this. If it's just the little scratches your trying to get out, Mother's Billet and flannel cloth. You can go to wallyworld, and buy it by the yard for about $3. Micro fiber rags will scratch.

    Well here we go, back together again. The only thing I didn't get finished cleaning and polishing was the front forks and handle bar controls.

    Those of you that were at Dave's for BB&BBQ remember that certain somebody who was late for the ride, because he was still trying to get he speedo back together. And we all said just tape it in. Thanks a lot.

    The controls were really bad too.

    Little polish and elbow grease.

    Got a few things together. Only got 6 hours in today, because of a late start, and I had another job come in, that I had to get started on. But it's back on the rack now.
