Default Re: Anyone done any polishing on their sidecovers?

Okay so I got satreted on my clutch cover this afternoon only to find out i only had some 80 and 180 paper laying around, but i was curious so i started gonna pick up more paper today.

First off I sprayed it down with oven cleaner to remove any residue from the sticker, grease etc.

heres how it looked after being rinsed off

And heres after some 80 grit

and after 180

I'm gonna try for a mirror finish as I plan on painting my motor black having polished convers and polishing the edge of the cylinder fins. A buddy of mine had an old harley done like that and it looked real nice. I'll post more after i get some more sandpaper tomorrow
