it hurt. that is all.
Are you using Harbor Freight polish compound as well? Did you sand that upper triple before polishing?
I'll take some good pics of the fork rebuild, these are really simple. For seals, I'm using the all balls fork seals. I used them on my 360 and they were really nice.
My 69 CL350 fork lowers have phillips head bolts holding them together, did your have the same...or allen heads? If they were phillips...were they tough to unscrew? It looks like the PO tried on mine...didnt strip heads completely. but they arent pretty. I dont know if he gave up or got em popped free. I am assuming gave up, before he messed em up to much. thats the thing that worries me about trying.BTW polish looks great!
Mine had phillips. I had to use an impact driver to get them loose. Once loose i pulled the fork seal c clip and was able to pull the upper leg out of the lower. Seemed that the cclip actually held the legs together and not the bottom screw. This threw me as its backwards to what im used to
