Hey Reverb, they are CNC machined. Real nice and the anodised treatment will prevent oxidization. I was told the chrome doesn't take too well to aluminium like it does to steel and judging by the state of my primary cover its true. It was all pealing off.

Besides, I didn't want them to be bling so I am happy with this finish.

Cheers Dan.

Dan,

Those engine plates look great! Nice detail. Too bad the left one got flipped. Oh well, surely he'll make it right.

Yeh, he already has made another one. I am just waiting for it to come back from being anodised.

Cheers Dan.

Default Re: My TR6 build starts here! - I Got My Chrome Back!!

So after a whole lot of sweating and swearing, I finally have my parts back from chrome and they are done nice. Its all there and there is nothing missing.

Anyone who has been following this thread will know that this guy said he would have them done in 8 weeks but really took 8 months , he wouldn't answer his phone and his shop was shut when I tried to recover my parts.

Anyone in the UK wanting parts chromed, don't use the guy in Thetford, Norfolk because it ain't worth the heartache.

Anyway, at least now I can get on and finish my build.

Cheers Dan.

Hey ConcreteB, keep your cover on!!

I figure that taking a good shit always takes a while but feels good, I take the same philosophic approach to my bike building.

Cheers Dan.

That girder was cool.
The electronics on the bottom of the seat may not be the greatest idea.

So you should have it ready for the Hayride (http://www.hotrodhayride.com/ )or the Tripout (http://www.thetripout.co.uk/) then?

No, you haven't had too many beers, it's true, I have a rear wheel on my build

I've been ill, again, so progress has been a little slow. I hope to finish off the rear end assembly tomorrow and then I can start on the front.

I guess I should be thinking about getting the tins painted...

Cheers Dan.
