Re: I had a breakdown today...
It did take time, but at least it's aluminum so it's easier than it would be with steel. It's hard to describe exactly what you're looking for in the finished surface.. it's a sort of satin-like shine that's almost a glow, like the edge of a well honed blade.
Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
