In the spirit of doing as much DIY as I can so that I can put the $$$ in the right places. I whipped up a zinc plating tank and did my first parts tonight. The dull grey one is right off the tank and the shiny one is after shining up with a wire brush and a trip in the tumbler.

So here's the Zinc plating setup... Not that impressive... Just a bucket from Lowe's and setup according to the instructions found here... http://home.comcast.net/~rt66tbird/website/zincplating.html



I got the yokes and foot pegs powder coated.

Really nice looking work.

I'm finally back out in the shop after an almost 2-year paycheck job. I'm getting into my Norton 880 build.

It ain't braggin' if ya done it.

Foot pegs all restored and ready. On to something else now. Restoring fasteners is tedious.

I am in the process of rounding up every last nut, bolt, washer, and other bare ferrous metal bits to ship off as much as I possibly can to the Cad platers; they have a 166 pound limit on their minimum charge. So far, I'm at about 30 pounds. I once managed to fit 55 pounds into a USPS large flat-rate box (the large flattish one). The guy at the counter said I was "cheating", but it's as plain as day "if it fits, it ships", and it fit even with a second box, slightly cut down, to line the inside and keep it from bursting in handling.

Gotta love it. From this-
