Sitting at the intersection and staring at the speedo, and cowling..I was wondering why that little screw holding the cowling on was not chromed so it would match the cowling...Sooo I got home and broke out the dremel tool with small buffing wheel and some jewelers paste and wa-la... it now looks like chrome....You would`nt think that it would make such a difference...But it does........Stainless buffs out to mirror finish ......It`s been a long saturday..:)

Looks nice! And it is all about the little things. Maybe if my wife ever has a slow down in her honey-do list, I'll try this trick too.

When u had the cowl off, did u notice if the ring holding the speedo lens rotates to gain access to the gauges etc,,,?

I prefer all my bolts to be stainless. They look good enough and will never rust.
It's still stainless. Just polished to a mirror like finish.:D
