Randy,
I have seen the work which was done to Rowland's parts and it is terrific. I have not had any done lately but will use these folks for the next work.
Later Mike

Randy,

For my last two projects I've used Atlantic Coast Plating out of Athens, TN.  You can find their web site easily on the Internet.  They do a lot of "show chrome" work and the last two tanks they did for me are the best chrome work I've ever had done.  The first time I used them they phoned me after they had my parts and talked to me about double-dipping the copper layer.  If your tank has some significant pitting, the second copper dip fills in everything nicely and really makes the final finish smooth.  I guess this takes "triple plating" and makes it a four step process. 

I'm sure you'll be pleased with their work.

I am looking for recommendations.

Thank you.

IMO, go with Yamabond or something similar, won't hurt and may prevent an air leak that could cost you a piston and cylinder. If a head gasket leaks, you'll see it and it won't destroy your engine.  A cylinder base leak might.

              Totally agree with nysz1b and BS Mechanic about not starting the engine for short periods during cold weather.

         Spent weeks last autumn/early winter trying to solve carb issues on my GTO. This meant short engine runs and taking the pipes off 'again', every time before the carbs could come off (pain in the ass :( ).
          Used to stand the pipes, inlet down, over a old pan to drain excess oil build up. It was very noticeable the volume of water also draining, increased as the air temperatures went down. The pipes would spit water from the tailpipe when really cold. The high pipes on a GTO also allow some oil/water to drain back toward the engine, not what you want !, doesn't happen with the low pipes on a GTR.
        After realising how much water was left in the pipes, I resisted the temptation to start the engine and simply kicked the motor over every couple of weeks. Giving the bike a good run before laying up for the winter will minimise moisture left in the engine and pipes.                                                                                             Brian.

Rather than chrome, why not use stainless bolts?

Here is what I do:
-draw file off the numbers/letters
-rub with 400 wet and dry and remove most marks
-use polishing wheel on buff to mirror polish.

I have made a threaded bar to hold bolt in as it can get very hot while polishing!
