    Thanks Red Hat and KimberRB. I've polished a couple sportbike frames so I had an extra cloth wheel and some Rouge laying around. I went over it quickly last night with it attached on my cordless drill and it already made a big difference. I'll use the grinder this weekend and it should turn out spotless. Thanks again guys.

    Will do. I did some work on it today. It looks 100 time better but I still have some pitting to clean up. Can not wait to see the look on my buddies face when I take it back to him.

    Thanks again for all the help guys. It's turning out really nice! I'm going to look at it tomorrow in the sun and see if there are any spots I missed. After that I'll reassemble it. The bluing turned out so nice I think I may go ahead and refinish the grip as well. Here’s a few pics of how it looks so far.





    I'll post one more set of pics once I get the grip done and it's all reassembled.

    That is outstanding. It dont even look like the same gun. The person that owns it should be as happy as a pig in Sh^%T.

    Thanks Red Hat. I'm going to let my buddy know that I only cold blued it and that it will not be as durable as a good hot blue. I figured he can send it in and get that done if he wants to.

    I was going to ask if you have any links to site explaining how to do the hot bluing. I saw some kits at midwayusa for $1200.00 just not sure if I want to drop that kind of money yet.

    I did it for a while back in the 80's and it was a pain. You have to use bluing salts and dissolve them under high heat. It becomes a caustic soda solution. It's very dangerous and will eat through leather and skin. High heat and caustic chemicals are not fun to play with. Here are a couple articles I found.
