Today we worked on sanding and polishing the front brake plate and hub some more, as I mentioned previously Brother casi85 asked me to leave the factory casting marks, imperfections, etc. and lightly polish the aluminum to retain as much of the factory appearance as possible so I lightly hand polished the brake plate and reassembled it with the shafts that I cleaned and the levers that Brother casi85 had rechromed. Dad also came for a visit and spent a lot of time sanding the hub so as soon as we polish it I will post more photos and start building the wheel with the new spokes and chrome rim.

I am going to polish the plate some more to remove the very fine scratches however this is how it looks so far.

Dad sanded the front hub on Friday so today I started polishing it, I also laced the hub to the new chrome rim with new spokes. I still have to true the rim so the spokes are loose in this photo and I am going to polish the hub some more however this is how the rim looks this evening.
