Did you (or anyone with RE underdrive pulleys for that matter) notice the pulleys were slightly larger than the stock pulleys? Bought mine used, and just thought that, that was interesting.

Should I put a clear coat on them?
I think they turned out pretty good for my first time painting wheels. What do you guys think?

Repaired my indicator stalk to get back my OBC button

Red wire was frayed and cut. Soldered up a small piece of wire, and adjusted my clock

the black primer looks decent - what does the final silver look like

Gee, thanks jack@$$. Simple yes that's normal would have sufficed. Some of us aren't too proud to ask a simple question when not knowing the answer...

Actually the primer was it's usual gray, and the black is the paint. That's how it is planned to stay. And I'm sorry, but I think you have the unpopular opinion.
