Whether you own a custom motorcycle or a flamed-out hot rod, beautifully finished metal parts are the finishing touch that transforms a nice machine into a million-dollar baby. Aluminum and steel can be polished, chromed, anodized, plated, and painted, and this book shows enthusiasts how to do it. The book includes what is required, what it will cost, when to use different processes and whether to have a professional do it or tackle the project at home. Author Dennis Parks answers every question completely and clearly, and offers step-by-step instructions for whatever is within the purview of home mechanics.
