started with 400 grit wet and dry... then 800 then 1200.. then used a fine wire brush on the end of my dremel..

then used lots of autosol and elbow grease!! old socks make excellent polishing cloths too!! :lol:

then a final rub down with brasso and a good rub all over with a clean cotton cloth its like a mirror now :)

probably wont stay like that for long though!! i intend to ride it lots!! :)
