Buff Buff Buff

I'm not feeling too hot today so I thought I'd post a progress sneak. Transmission cover. I had to scrap the least scarred and mangled transmission cover (foreground) because the kicker hole has too over-sized to press fit a new kicker bushing. Crazy to think it was in a fair bit better condition than the others.

This piece was a PITA. I had to dress down and reshape all the deep scars and gashes with files, do a couple of days worth of hand wet sanding and finally buff. Not perfect but probably OK for a rider.

If I did restorations for a living I'd make like 5¢ an hour...
