That looks sweet, I started mine last month and am all done with my frame and now working on the swing arm. Not sure what to do with the rims yet, those look good though!

it seems like the biggest pain in the a$$ was with the 220 grit. after that it goes pretty good. just make sure that you take your time and get out the scratched from the previous paper. if you aren't a patient person then do not attempt this or you will go out of your mind with frustration, plus it will look like crap.
