polishing

well all the polishing really paid off the forks, fork covers, drive housing and brake cover are close to a mirror finish. the brushed stainless fork covers were a pain it took hours with the 400 paper then less time as i moved up in grit, final buff with the green bar and they are now highly polished stainless, all told it took over 25hours for all of the polishing. guess i'll have to keep some mothers aluminum polish in my bags from now on

Sonds like you did a good job. How about some before and after pictures? I'd love to see the difference.
