    Hey for anyone that's curious how my build is coming along I'm trying to knock out some quick polishing on my rear end and forks to have a rolling chassis by tomorrow night. I LOVE DREMEL.

    • There not aluminum axels .... there steal correct ? ...

    • I do polish work on bike all the time ... I just never seen a way to polish steal and keep it from rushing .... only things ive polished is aluminum .... I tryed this years ago as a kid to my 200x axel .... looked great all shiny and smooth for about a week ....

    • I used emery in a black block after that whole process and then a blue polish that leaves a film over it so to speak. So here's fingers crossed. If it does rust I will wet sand it real quick and shoot it will clear enamel

    • I tried that a long time ago ... corosion protectent or clear ect ... nothings gunna stop it from rusting ... the b Klein did it on was always kept clean washed after every ride and garage kept and it always rusted .... think itblooksnworse now then it did befor spent all that time cleaning it up .... if it was a aluminum axel then I'd be good .... ive been polishing aluminum .. painting cars and restoring bikes along time and ive never found a way .... clear e namels just gunna chill off ...

    • Did you remove 100% of the rust? Ya know it's like cancer... Either way I don't regret the experience

    • Yeah rust all gone ... I weld patch panels in rotten cars for a living .... it was done right just doesn't work bro .... got a coating on it from the factory and once u strip that its raw dog metal witch we all no loves to rust ... and carode fast .... ive tryed expensive plyable emron automotive clear and it just chipped off after a qhile and looked real shitty

    • Bummer. If it does go that way I will have my powder coating place take care of it then. Fingers crossed

    • That will work ....none of the parts ive powdered for my bike and others have any chop scratch peeling problems at all .... powders where its at ... especially if u do it ur self
