Theve only been on for a month, I was away for 2 weeks but there is a lot of stainless bolts on my Darmah and its all polished and weathers good, its like chrome, you just give it a quick wipe over most of the time then use some polish at other times

No, they come semi finished and you finish them to how you want them. It is a very easy job to finish them, but I suppose you do need the right gear.

Pickups

Martin, Ron Yound did my pickups the other week when he re-assembled my gearbox. He modify's the pickup blades as well as they move out and hit the rotor. As you found out, the guy is a genius on these old engines and you won't need to remove an arm or leg to pay him.

Yep, an engineering shop will do it for you, get them to press the bushes in then ream them to suit. Just check your swing arm pin is not worn, you can buy oversized pins if need be.
