How to polish aluminum
Written by spacetiger_j... on 9/8/2010 at 12:45 am

I got a few questions from members of the site on how to polish aluminum
components.

Here is the link to another site I hang around - caters to the CX/GL 500/600
bikes - and the specific thread on how to polish aluminum:

tools to do the job. I find I now whimp out and use someone I have had great
experience with. I will look up the person and post his info but have to get it
off another machine...
