A key day in my project today... my bus was collected from my home and taken to Slamwerks for a smack with the lowering stick...

Craig from BC Recovery did the moving for me, I can't recommend him enough.. on time, exceptionally polite, VERY respectful of your bus and generally an all round good egg!



Some pictures from todays activity....

I've been trying my hand at something new today...

As shown earlier in this thread I bought a pair of Westy Louvred Windows to go in my bus, the jury has been out, and to an extent still is about whether I'll fit them or not.

Either way I wasn't happy with how they looked, and I think this is what's putting me off, so I bought a metal polishing kit from amazon, and, having never done anything like this before, took myself out to the garage and had a go..

I've only done the initial cut, but I'm happy with the results so far...

I do need to get the right tool for doing the intricate bits.. but hey, you gotta start somewhere right!

I bought this kit.. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Pro-Max-Aluminium-Brass-Metal-Polishing/dp/B0050HW88K/ref=sr_1_37?ie=UTF8&qid=1359916674&sr=8-37

Here are the results so far, like I said, this isn't finished, this is just after the first cut..

Before:

After: (approx 2 hours work)

Are you going to laquer them once they're polished?
If imagine they'd oxidise again quite quickly.

Look good though Squire
