I'll Second that.

While the paint job is exceptional, the polished aluminum really sets it apart from the rest.  Absolutely amazing.  It just looks like a brand new bike.

I wet sanded using 400,800 then 1000 grit. In the tight areas I used the 3M pads.
After that I used a cotten pad on a drill and rough from Harbor Freight. I spent a
saturday working on the forks, they had the brushed look and the clear coat was
very yellow. I followed everything up with Mothers Alum Polish.
It's a good idea to use gloves so you don't absorb all that aluminum.
