    please take proper precautions when spraying urethanes..those most often than not contain isocyanates. Pretty dangerous stuff from what i've read..

                    using 3M rubbing compound:




                    somebody said that you can apply wax after a week, but i decided to apply it after the rubber compound buffing process


                    using Turtle Wax:





                    after wax application:

                          Nice job! I especially like that bender, I've got to make me one of those.

                            i usually wet sand the base coat (even the primer-if needed, and the top coat) the following morning, but sa instruction pwede na sya within 5 hours yata hehe

                            thanks master handyman, yup, the bender is really helpful, a must for a metal worker like us

                              nice bracket sir.... nicely done... one thing lang boss

                              im kinda worried about the strength dun sa may pinagturnilyuhan =)




                              same issue i had with my fabricated givi bracket...

                              dalawang beses naulit na tinibayan yung connection / weld

                              dun nag fail din sa part sa dulo.. where the round bar meets with the hole kung saan nakaturnilyo..

                              or maybe i just carry too much or ride really hard =\
