Very impressive.:clapper: Mine look like the one on the left...I kinda thought they were supposed to look like that.:shock:Wet sanding, huh. I have never done that. You might have to post a step by step for some of us slower types. What type of sandpaper, ect. Thanks in advance!:waving:
wet sanding is done with that fine black metal paper and water. i started with 400 but if they are as pitted as mine were i'd go lower and work up to 600 grit. the bench buffing wheel took it from there. if no wheel then work your way up to 1200 or even 1500 but don't bother trying to take the pitting off with anything higher than 400 because it'll take forever. don't use anything aggressive like those finishing disks on a mini grinder because it'll just end up bumpy.
i used 2000 on my 86 fork tubes and they came out really nice the finer the paper the less buffing you have to. take your time wet sanding and you'll only have to buff it a little. the wet sanding with the black body work paper cuts faster and lets the paper last longer and makes it micro smooth. pics not as good as his but they shine like chrome.
