SO my bike is murdered except for my tan wall tires. And I think a couple of polished parts might look sexy. Can anyone explain the process required to polish parts.

Also can anyone explain why paintstripper does not affect my sprocket. The paint stripper just drips right off of it wassat

Polished my cranks not too long ago. Kevin pretty much covered it. Raw your part, use some Mothers Mag and Aluminum polish on a rag and rub until you get the desired finish.

There are a few how to's on YouTube for polishing/rawing Ali parts. First thing to do is get some decent rubber gloves, long sleeve shirt and even some safety glasses

Paint Stripper = Paint (Chromoly parts are usually painted: Frame, forks, bars, cranks etc.)
Oven Cleaner = Anodizing (Aluminium parts are usually anodized: Stems, Sprockets etc.

Thank you, I really don't see what's so hard to understand about this. I've heard kids say they're gonna put oven cleaner on their frame to strip it. Good luck, you're gonna be waiting a while.

Would the aluminum and mag polish work on a frame too or would i just use some regular metal polish?

1000 grit sandpaper and a lot of time.
A layer of clear coat on top and you're good.

I worked in a mold making shop. The "cavities" had to have a very high polish. It looked like a mirror when they're done. It was all stainless and aluminum. The process was essentially described here.

@kevin burnett .…… that looks proooooooooo! You done good. smile

It works, just isn't as good. Saves hella time over fucking sanding

I seek progression, not perfection.

Yeah it depends on what look you want to get, I like it a little more scratched up looking.

when I looked on YouTube you spray the cleaner on and leave it for live five minutes and then just wipe it off, not sure if there's a better brand though I would probably go with whatever's more heavy-duty or commercial grade
