I posted in the small block section originally so I will post pictures etc in this section now ..
Frame back from the Powder coaters ,
I refitted the Vin Plate and the top and bottom bearing cups and tapped out the threads on the frame to clear the powder coating out,
Spent a good few hours today taking the final drive unit apart ,what a bugger to dismantle.
I think I will get the swinging arm Powder coated in aluminium silver easier to keep clean then.

LSN do a great job but if you have the wheels done consider asking for the inside of the rim to be masked off, as in my case the extra coating caused the tyres to be extremely difficult to seat (well documented on here).

Thanks Guys ,
Chris, I think I will be getting the wheels Vapour Blasted and not Painting them now I see it could be a problem with tyres.
Finally got everything dismantled now so its a case of blasting and painting .
I think I may try getting the shocker springs powder coated in Chrome silver to see how they turn out.
the big final drive bearing is quite rough and noisy after  I cleaned it out with petrol.
so I think I will change it ,Bikes only done 32k miles.

Parts back from Vapour blasting,
 I blasted the final drive unit in my own blaster with glass media,it came out well I think,
not as smooth as the vapour blasted bits but looks like new anyway

That's all looking splendid Chrispy.
I'm interested to see the powder coated "chrome" finish you can achieve.
If you do decide to go down the genuine chrome plating route I can recommend Ace Plating and Polishing in Birmingham.  I've used a few chrome platers, always with good results, but at eye-watering prices and taking too long to turn around.
The items below for my V7 Sport were triple plated and polished by Ace Plating for £140 cash and ready in 10 days.  My regular plater in Hinckley would have charged £300+ and those guys S+T in Bristol would probably have been £500.

Not quite sure where your going to mount the tidy looking reg/rec bracket but don`t forget that two of the four mounting bolts on the rec are earth and the other two are not, as in this link. Ask me how I know !!!
