      Hey dude...how do you get the rough stuff off of the middle part of the frame? Do you just use aircraft remover or do you sand?

          sand, sand, and sand some more. be careful if you use a coarse wheel, dont want to take too much off

          2000 tillis plus stuff with some polished stuff and some carbon fiber stuff and a little bit of tlr stuff and some gsxr stuff

                Use a high speed cloth wheel in the end of a drill ... I couldnt get it looking very good doing it by hand or with a lambswool buff. I used a loose calico buff in a drill with red then white tripoli after sanding to 1500

                And yes sand that vertical part.. its a bitch, same with the head stock.

                    yeah but just take your time with the orbital. Just do the bulk with it and don't use to rough a paper, maybe 320 or 400 to start with, coarser paper if its not cutting back enough.
