Hey everyone, after some info from anyone who has found how to get the factory finish look on the 1985 fork lowers. I have a few sets that have been vapor blasted so have lost the semi polished look, and others that are just ugly and need restoring. I am experimenting at the moment with different "polish" finishes then adding a clear coat.
Any help is appreciated.
I'm pretty certain they were clear anodized from the factory. I've got a set where the anodizing has sloughed off. I was considering vapor blasting and then using a clear of some sort. Maybe a semi-gloss type appearance.
