Re: Embedded Chain plate maint/replacement

I had mine mirror polished...thats what they call it down here...its like glass...basically the top coat is melted down by buffing...you lose some thickness but because I had mine oversized to 3/8ths instead if 1/4 Im still way stronger

well see how long they last

even if its only 10 years Ill be happy for sure
