Great job so far. I have been taking on this same project on 1501, so I understand just how much work is involved. Hopefully you didn't have to fight as much rust as I did

Rust wasn't really an issue I think the only thing that really had any rust was the rotors

The tumbler is a nice tool to have around I mostly use it to clean bolts and small parts leaves the threads nice and clean and there cheap if you use there 25% off coupon.







So here's a little of today's progress.

I was slightly confused myself. Of caution though, while the tumbler is great for small pieces like the water neck, caliber bracket, etc, be cautious with the bolts as the medium will remove the factory zinc/cadmium coating. This will cause your bolts (while looking sharp in the short-term) to wind up acquiring surface rust.
