    • THAT is a proper MIRROR polish!! omg! Showed Dave as he would be doing the work :p Ok, so where do I buy the tools for such a lovely finish! Don't mind putting in the hours between us. That is superb...

    • I used a 3inch air sander then 3inch air buffer to finish and yeah it does take a while. lol

    • A while? as in weeks? lots to come off I'd imagine.. OMG, that is stunning..

    • Shaun Westaways frame is done too although it's good, I think it's a bit less in terms of finish but he was dead lucky it was like that when he bought the bike! somebody put a lot of effort into it for sure..

    • Lol, I had the whole swingarm off to do it properly. It is polished inside and out, top and bottom. At a guess maybe took me 10-15 hours. I wasn't really counting. And when I first started the process was a bit slow until I worked it out.

    • Yeah, you'd have to take the thing off, no way could you do it to that level on the bike!!!

    • Yeah I did the frame, peg, rearsets, the whole lot really

    • Like 'Pringles'... once you pop, you just can't stop!! Cheers for the help, THANK you so much, got it all now and bought some bits... Thank you again, I have a spare swing arm so can get started and just bought a new compressor!! yeahhhhhh... :-) (y)

    • Stop talking about food!!! You making me hungry. Lol

    • If you ever come to any of newly invented 'Twin Thunder tours' I'll bake it for you myself!! lol..
