After seeing Shaun Westaways highly mirrored polished swing arm. want one
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..
