Keep a diary of your latest build here.
Day after bringing it home,trial and error of parts just to basically get a feel of it before new wheels,tires and whatever else gets added as it goes along.
trying to recycle old parts as much as possible
Wow! How did you clean up that chrome on your chain guard? That came out awsome!!
Life is a beach(cruiser)
first (with plenty of water for lube) I use a typical blue SOS type steel wool scouring pad.Then buffing wheel on grinder if necessary.SOS (make sure they have the blue powdery stuff) dont even harm old enamel paint in my experience if used with caution.I used them on the paint of my 1953 starlet to remove stuck on brown attic muck and then waxed--you can comb your hair in the finish its so glossy.
I use the cheapos from Dollar General as they seem less abrasive.
Some might have a heart attack and assume the pads will ruin paint.So ill post this.The angle of the shot doesnt show how super glossy it is ,but close enough to show my point.
I used them on every inch of the bikes paint as it was stained brown badly.
