As you can see in the main build thread, I started polishing the frame this weekend. What a PIA. More to come.

When is the finish deadline again?LOL

I was at first, and then switched to one of those black and decker power hand sanders. There are still some areas of the frame rails that sink in a little and the power sander doesn't get too.Its gonna take a while.

I will still need to get some of those flapper wheels to sand the cast areas, not too mention way more sand paper in way more grits, and steel wool, etc. And I am only basically doing the side areas of the frame, that are seen and easily accessed for maintaining the shine.

im thought youre supposed to do it by hand?! because machines will leave marks in the finish??

mbe the person who told me is just old school. not sure. i've never done it.

looks like its coming along tho Z. keep it up...IMO dont skimp on the areas you cant see so much, cuz someone will see them. i personally always look for that shit on peoples bikes.

Sadly, I got nuttin new to report for my build at this time. I recently got some new sand paper and a flapper wheel to continue polishing of the frame, but even that is on hold being that I am trying to get my SV1K mods done much sooner.

I also have a specific exhaust on the way from Ebay, but the jack ass seller took forever to ship it, and seems it may have been lost in the Fedex system. Shows it was shipped 1/24 from Ca...and has yet to show up. I got Fedex tracing it now. If I get this to work, it will be off the hook. :party-smiley:
