Great or cover
« on: April 27, 2022, 01:20:49 AM »
Anybody got one of these before I get robbed from the states and order one?

Mines beyond plating as it’s so badly pitted, had a go at it today but given up, I’d rather just get a better one.

Let me know

I've got a gold one somewhere, I kid you not. No idea where I got it from. I'll see what condition it's in. The cover that came off my engine was awful, rat piss and chrome just don't mix. I bought a really nice second hand one. It might be one of the parts that doesn't get rechromed it's that good.

Anyone got a better one they want to part with?

The one I sanded and ground all the defects off is being chromed as we speak Roo. I'll post a pic of it when I pick it up, if it's to your liking we can discuss it.

Possible to restore that BTW, it would be a little hard but doable.

I know but simply havent got the inclination buddy, me fingers are raw from working on the rims yesterday. Gonna bob off to a polishers this arvo to see what they want to make up for a price for doing all of it, I simply can’t bring myself to do it I hate it so much and not really geared up for it just small bits so it makes it avright chore tbh

Paint….yup
Spanner if…..yup
Electrickery……..sort of but, aye, go on then
Polishing……………nope, sod that

Thanks mate. Did you have any headlight nuts. Similar to the shot I bunged you through, the ones on the inside of the shell to accept the earths and the shell fixing bolts

Yeah got some of those Roo. Spotted them the other day, just need to make sure they ain't the ones out of my bike, so if I find 3 or 4 (which I'm pretty sure I will) you want one? To you, dirt cheap, £1,000,000 each.

The art of restoration Roo is actually to restore something, not just bungs on new bits that you get from a shop or other people etc. That's just cheating  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Yesh pleeesh Ken :D  A million quid sounds perfect, i'll have that ;) :D ;D

Yeah I know it is but sometimes tyou kbow when youre simply flogging a dead horse, or in this case a dying donkey.

sometimes though, it's a matter of knowing youre limits and knpwing when enough's enough with money and equipment
 restrictions.Just not worth it to get a mediocre resultin this case.

Holy sh#t
I’ve just re read that. It appears I need to have my steam driven lap top sorted again as it reads fine on the screen but evidently it doesn’t come out that way!

I’m on it

Why is that gold Ken, is that pre chrome Nickel  plate or summut!? Weird colour that!

Are you willing to part with the earth strap under sufference? I thought you were hanging onto them ……eg, yer last post?
