swingarm wont polish

Recommended Posts

so its been long awaited for this project to be done. well i get the swingarm on and well it looks like shit next to the polished frame. i used the same polishing technique on the swingarm as i did the frame. which is why i dont understand why it didnt polish. put oven cleaner on it twice and still no good. not even any oxidization coming off. what can i do to get this polished? sorry for the crappy photo i'll try to get some better ones tomorro with a real camera. swingarm looks worse then in this pic lol

You have to sand the paint off of the swinger first.

Not on a Honda, you use oven cleaner, they are not painted, well not with a color that is, they are clear coated .

Rick, 🙂 don't know what to tell you, I have done 3 CR swingarms with oven cleaner so I am at a loss why it has not worked for you ?

Did you leave it on a good 20-30 minutes ?

I always did my oven cleaner treatment with swingarm off the machine though because it makes a heck of a mess being that I spray the whole arm so it really cleans,takes clear coat off and degreases it good.

What did you initially start sanding with. I think I hit mine with an orbital and 400 but mine was pretty rough.
