By the way, don't blame me if you ruin a proprietary finish.

I would agree but the way I understand it the stolen bike was one of several. I don't know the guy very well.

No it's a mail order scam.

On stipling. This was my first time. A couple things I learned: keep your tool

Quote:
SHARP. Back up your gun against a solid surface, or use a specialized gunsmithing clamp. Don't be afraid to tap your punch, the name of the game is displacing metal. Start in the middle and work your way outwards, so that you get a feel for how it goes before you reach any lines. Treat these lines like a coloring book, approach them slowly. Hold the punch about 1/16-1/8 from the surface of the metal, pop it with the hammer, let it bounce, just like a tattoo gun. When you follow the contours of the gun, you want to maintain add much of a direct strike as possible, straight into the metal with as little angle as possible. Do small sections approximately the size of a pin head at a time, NEVER bigger than a pencil eraser head (not without plenty of experience at least). Strike your punch with your hammer DIRECTLY. Keep your elbows up, and make a solid strike, otherwise you'll slip around.

This is why the center of my pattern looks different than the rest. These are things I learned along the way.
ORRRRR you could shoot it multiple time with a 410 using steel shot to get the same effect

So a customer has been buggin me trying to rebuild his own outboard motor , dont really blame him for trying but after a few months they get all built and put back on but cant figure out a few things so he FINALLY breaks down and brings it to me like I have been telling him to do .
Orange silicon EVERYWHERE '' thee ultimate sin to me ''
EVERY SINGLE PISTON is upside down
Engine will only turn over with a breaker bar
Every fuel line is wrong
1/2 the wires are hooked up wrong
So I had to call him and rub it in how much cheaper it would have been to just have me build the stupid thing and he would be fishing right now , now I have to tear it all the way down , clean up the sealer and freaking silicon figure out what they effed up and fix then build it right . AND Im not sure yet but they either have a bearing too tight or the hammered .30 over pistons into a .20 over hole , everything is extremely tight .
I even told him he could build here and I would at least guide them with no charge but they declined , now its gonna cost
UPDATE
they left a socket under the flywheel and one IN THE ENGINE
I called with a new estimate and he just gave me the whole engine so thats a WIN for the day , should be able to fix and sell it for bout 2k
