Plating

Not a lot of photos, but I wanted to try and do DIY nickel plating on all the bolts that are "special". All the other standard bolts will be replaced by new stainless steel bolts.



The plating came out very nice, I hope its durable as well. These are the plated rear shock bolts, the photobomb bolt on the left is a new stainless bolt, the unpolished plated bolts shines more than brand new bolts. I made those small spacers to reduce the hole size compared to the bolt, there was quite allot of play on the rear bolts.



This is a spacer inside the bolt hole on the swing arm.
