I need to clean & lube my Baja ,replace a few parts!

I have these RPM fronts ,I want go ahead an put these on ,the original orange ones just look nasty on
there ,the aluminums are nice ,but they are heavy ,an also send hard hits to other places ,I would have
to make a choice here ,because I still need to replace the rear ones as well ,so I know which one to
purchase ,as I still need to buy the rear!

I could see that. Like when I was wire managing my radio box and CDI setup, or when I did my transmission, was so done after.

Well ,manage to get the other shock & arms off ,got the engine plate off ,now it is definitely a broke back Baja!.....LOL

I had to heat the plate screws up on the stove ,they finally broke loose but one screw ,stripped the head ,but was able
to fish it out from the back side with pliers after getting 3 out an working the plate back & forth!

That orange shit is going OFF ,it is going to be polished ,the rest of the front parts are to ,a few small plates
were the hinge pin goes through ,the rest of the front end is good ,no need for it to come off!....:cool:

I am also thinking very seriously about doing the whole chassy ,It will take quite a while an does have some tight areas .
but ,I do have a quite a few intricate files ,down to some that have some odd shapes ,the tiny files have a flat kind of
egg shape ,some are round like a chain saw sharpener ,an I have the big 10'' flat ,one that is flat one side ,curved on
the other ,a solid round one an a triangle one as well ,also ,bench grinder ,hand grinder ,all the Dremel attachments ,
an of coarse ,very fine sand paper & steel wool!

Any one think that I should do the chassy ,or leave it gray?... ,chassy is only scratched on the bottom!
