GL1100A trailer hitch project and little care.

Postby chiritc » Wed May 02, 2012 11:09 am



A few months ago my Dad and I started the project (used parts).

As you can see there a lot of dirt and rust, the cost $40.



Before



After



Also we got the trunk rack for $20



This emblem was a gift from the seller guy to my Dad.



Check the grilles for the turn lights (front and rear) for $40









Replacement of broken turn light.





Now the pictures that show the care and time dedicated to the GL1100A

Before





After





I recommend you this product to restore the shine of aluminium http://www.meguiars.com/en/automotive/p ... um-polish/

Regards!

That looks just fantastic! Obviously quite a bit more than a "little" care and attention went into that restoral!

You're right, some $$$ for the new chrome (almost $250) and some drops of blood, he he he.
