    One thing I wanted to add in here that I am sure I recall mentioned on this thread earlier, the post threading that is used to tighten the center post into the top AND the bottom is a 510 thread... when doing mine I just grabbed an old 510 carto, screwed in the bottom and chucked the carto, then did the same to the top. When I was up to my top grit (320 here too) I screwed on the top cap onto the top section and spun it to make the finishes match. Just a tip to make the chucking easier and guarantee it's square, for those needing an easy connection.

    I know this is ages late, but I looked at Ace and couldn't find any... they did however have M3 Stainless steel screws with a nice fat head, that became thumb screws after 60 seconds and a dremel cutting wheel...

    Looks like nice modification there bud, bit to technical for myself (or that's what I keep thinking).

    Did sand down my aga-t cap last night so it's air hole would align properly.

    I'm a Streetrodder, there is a lot I mean a lot of billet aluminum on a custom, wheels, valve covers, Streering wheel, door handles, cranks, engine parts, pumps, on and on and on. I simply took a micro finer polishing cloth a can of Meguiars Hot Rims and a few minutes buffing and I had a mirror finish. Simple. I also use Chrome Polish on my PVs including the black chrome and the gold. The only exception I ,made was to my MVP which I purchased a wrap for called Black Mamba, wicked cool, I ask the vendor for a little extra and wrapped a couple of ViVis to match, makes a very handsome rig. Really a beautiful job removing that knurling, very well done. Mine came that way so the polish was enough. I also spent a few minutes in a hardware store and bought all new metric hardware screws,nuts washers all anodized black and put a number 2 hex wrench and a sharp pin ( made from born trussing pins ) and a very small phillps on a ring I carry as tools. Now, if I could only roll a constant wick and coil I'd be happy.

    Since they are not made that way anymore, either a vendor that has some old stock or the classifieds.
