Nice shop. I see a race car in the background so assume you guys know what you are doing, for sure.
That aluminum foil trick is an oldie for sure. When I was a kid, the trick was aluminum foil and Coca Cola.
Another trick is to use foam pipe insulatoin to protect the alum rods from getting dinged on the case mouth. They don't like dings, especially transverse dings.
Nice batch of special tools you got with that bike. The tools can be the challenge to a first timer.
Glad to see you are keeping it original. They are only original once.
Looking forward to the finished product.
