Thank you Rob, that means a lot coming from you. I have a great amount of respect for you as I have read so many of your posts of insight and expertise. Webby was right!
It is a fun project and a fine education. This will be the second restoration, the first being a 1962 Honda, in which I have used your method of zinc plating the hardware. I was thoroughly impressed with how simple the process was and how well the parts turn out. Thanks for posting all of your great ideas and techniques, they are extremely helpful.
