The most time consuming thing I ever made, but the most rewarding

I used several thicknesses of steel wool w/water and just kept going round and round. thicker wool to take off the big stufff, thinner to get rid of the scratches. 1000 grit sand paper with water to finish. trick was to keep going round and round otherwise youll see the scratches and it wont flow well

I ended replacing my 550lb springs on my cheap chinese shocks with the following springs from http://www.mcmaster.com/

1 96485K138 SPRING-TEMPERED STL JUMBO COMPRESSION SPRING, 3" LENGTH, 1.937" OD, .25" WIRE DIAMETER 2
EA 2 0 11.77

They are a little longer and slightly wider inside diameter, but they hooked up just fine. Still a little harsh, but way better than the 550lb springs. I wont be able to tell how good the setup works until I get the bike together and can ride it.

Someone asked about splitting rockers, these are some I did for my ironhead. I think I posted the tech here once before, but I have it on my site now too:

So the frontend that I'm usin on the Ironhead I'm buildin has had the riser holes bored out so the regular bushing kit won't work. Today at work I made these with a file, lathe, a drill bit and some urethane roundstock that was kicking around the shop. Not too bad for a one armed machinist.

Just get out there and (buy bike, ride bike, re-engineer bike in garage etc..)
just DO IT.

shock mounts made from 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" x 1/8" square tube.
I made some earlier from flat stock, but could never get the bends just right. square tube is the way to go!
