Polish Aluminum

I've got this Motron I've been dreaming about, and I pulled an aluminum V1 cover out of my giant stock of awesome parts.

  It looked good, but it wasn't shiny enough.  I took about an hour today and went after it with 200, 400, 800, 1000, 00 steel wool, aluminum polish then 0000 steel wool.
It isn't that hard to do a mediocre job polishing stuff, but boy to you get a sweat going.  There was some pitting that I didn't get out, I should have started at 100 grit perhaps, but it's shiny enough for me.

I fried some stuff

Some of the Yetis came over the other day and we had a fry party where we celebrate all things delicious and cooked in oil.  We fried up some sausage links and patties, dipped them in pancake batter, then deep fried them for delicious breakfast treats.  Then we made donuts and funnel cakes.  This has nothing to do with mopeds other than this is some seriously good breakfast, which is probably one of my favorite parts of moped rallies, eating breakfast Sunday morning.
