Well I spent 20 plus hours polishing my motor this weekend !!! Ouch what a pain in the ass, would not recommend this to two many people. We had the motor out fixing a tranny issue so I decided to attempt to polishing the motor. It turned out alright I guess let me know what you guys think ? I have a Direct Dive Lockout (polished on the way)and we are putting a 5mil crank in her as well !!! I'll post some pictures when it's all back together ! Here are some before and after pictures.

clear or not to clear ?

Yes I have thought about clear coating it but I'm on the fence about it.A good buddy of mine does powder coating and has clear coated his wifes bike. It looked good but once it's clear coated your stuck and I would not want it to turn yellowish after time. p.s. what's wrong with the pictures ?

Looks Good! Don't think you can PC the polished aluminum since it's not "clean" or it won't last but I may be wrong.

Looks great Jim! I know how much work that is! We've had wheels PCed clear and they came out fine and there is a PC clear that is a true clear that my powder coater uses. the only thing you need to do is when you do your final polish make sure the polish you use does not have silicone in it and your good to go! We have one set out there that have been done for 4 yrs. so far and still look great.

I know this is 10 years later but can you give an update of how this has held up? I'm considering doing this because I love the polished look
