Picked these up with a bit of body rust & oxidation. Rest of the shocks are like in new condition so that wasn't a prob..
Springs are getting powdercoated black this week so the shock body should bling out behind the spring.
Here's some before and after pix.

I like that orange too but I can't rock em! Original owner had his frame in the same color.
And there's actually a gold flake in there too. Tried to catch it in the sun but didn't come out!

And I'm sanding! See that pad on that cordless screwgun?? Just let that pad do the work. Then start sanding.
I'm picking up more paper tomorrow & hopefully a buffwheel. I'm expecting mirror finish.
In pics shown I did hit it with the Powerball & Metal Gloss Polish!

need to find a way to put it into a lathe and spin them then use a very fine sand paper to clean it good. then use a polishing compound and pour some on and use a cloth rag. all while spinning the shock in the lathe. it should make it look good.

Sounds like a good idea but I can all ready see a spinning shock grabbing the rag followed by the hand...
I rather a buff wheel on the bench grinder & I have some good polish on deck.

Picked these up for $200 & I sold my old shocks for $100.
So I like think I got a good $100 deal here. :)
