On my days off I polished the left engine cover, and swingarm covers/sets. The engine cover was heavily oxidized, had old clear coat, etc. I used progressively finer sand paper while finished with cutting compounds and Mother Polish: 320, 600, 1000, 2000, brown cutting compound, white cutting compound, and Mothers. The engine cover took me 8 hours (the first 5 being with the 320 grit, getting all the old gunk off) while the swingbar covers took just 1 hour. They turned out pretty nice IMO!

Thanks Dan. Have a couple of items to improve but I'm quite happy with how it turned out.

@RadDad - Totally LOVE your side bags. Where did you get them?

Very nice job on that exhaust XLX. I wish my original exhaust was salvageable.

I cut up an old pair of coveralls and glued/rivet to the original side covers added leather straps. only the zipper pocket is functional - keep documentation in there.

Before & After. The only thing decent on this bike when I got it was the paint. At least it was ~98% intact.
Frame-up restored. What killed me on this one was having to replace the rims and spokes. That was not anticipated.
