You must be a very patient and steadfast man, Gazar. 
Looking great.  Well done. 
Do you polish on a linishing wheel? 
I worked in a shed where one guys job was polishing alloy bullbars, all day long. Very dirty job. 
You could make quite a quid doing wheels for guys, you know.

Linishing wheel is an attachment on bench grinder that is made up of layers of cloth. Utilising varying grades of Linishing "soap", a bar with polishing grit, to cut and polish alloy to a fine shine.  
My hat is off to you for your efforts.

All that's needed now is some black or red painted tank and fairings. The grey paint doesn't do the polishing any justice. Just my opinion of course. Smile

Impressive stuff, you've done a great job!!

Think I'll leave mine as is, I reckon you'll spend as much time up keeping the new finish as you will riding it;)
