Originally posted by duessel OH, you know it!!! I have not started the frame yet since my garage is cold as F***, but it will be soon.
thats cool. i think my frame was powder coated instead of anodized because OC and aircraft remover didnt affect the coat, so i used a really super fine brass wire wheel with a dremel
do you know if yamaha uses anodize or powdercoat, or what?
I think the Stripper is only good above 50 oe 60 deg. F??? I know its cold up in PA...that might have been a factor! Next time just take some steel wool to scratch the surface for the stripper to penetrate.
well im trying to polish intercooler piping for a supra at the moment,but i also wanna polish my f3 swing arm,,,,,can u tell me wut ur using for polishing cuz its a bitch,im basically saning with a drill,it comes out shiny but wavy,and scratched,can u tell me the steps of gritd to use?????????????????
your swingarm if its a stock piece is steel not aluminum.
but to polish things you start off with the lowest grit you can
then move up.
i polished my wheels and all the alumium parts on the bike.
i went 150,220,400,600,800,1000,1200,1500 and 2000 grit.
after that i used mothers polish and little buffing wheel you get at
sears for $5 and put in on your drill and go at it. after that wipe
it down with some aresoal glass cleaner and a good cloth tho
get the fine dust off of it. keep cleaning it to the rag doesnt
get black anymore. then put a light coat of wax on the polished parts
