thanks for the compliments, i'll be getting anti-vib bar ends in later this month to replace the red ones. the polishing wasn't hard just to too long. my advice to anyone who wants it done: let someone else do it for you.
when i did my F3 wheels it took me a total of 24 hours give or take. i sanded mine down and then went up. most ppl just strip i sanded and with sanding they come out alot better but it is alot of work. you start with 150 then go up the ladder up to 2000 wet.
