So I got the rear end polished up which took a lot longer than expected :lol:
I also decide I couldn't put the horrible brake bosses back on so bought some ti ones.

I cleaned up the forks and rear shock. Got some 97 sl's instead of the 96 ones in the mock up. These have total air carts in them.

Image

Image

I serviced the rear shock and replaced the O-rings but forgot to take many pic's.

Image

Image

I then decided the judy crown needed to be polished to match the rear end.
So some more wet sanding.

Image

Image

And after a polish. Need to finish rebuilding these next.

Finally my Crossmax's turned up today think these should suit it nicely

Very impessive results

Can I ask what you used to polish your metal Rear End and Stantion with :?:

Plain old Elbow grease, Autosol and plenty of time

or a Buffing wheel
