The front fender came off of the parts bike and was in really good shape. Used the aluminum foil trick and waxed it. The back fender confused me a bit. It seemed like bare aluminum but every thing I saw on these bikes suggested it was chromed. So maybe it was chromed aluminum that was completely flaked off. Anyway I used 1000 grit sandpaper and then buffing compound to get it close to looking like chrome.
