My throttle/gear lever has some scratchs and pitting, so I sanded it with 100 grit paper thinking I would repaint it, but now I think I may leave it like this

FWIW I think it looks hot like that! Will it corrode with no protective coating?

Polish it to a mirror finish and annodise it clear. That will keep it protected. :thumbup:

Elbow grease ( 1000 wet & dry ) and a cheap polish/buffing machine ( a friend or friend's father should have one ).

The anno is done by a shop. My local guy says all alloy is anno'd clear and then the colour is added in another stage/tank.

You could pick a colour if you didnt want just clear.

The anno shouln't cost much. Make a few calls to local businesses.

:plus1: Do that and it will look like a mirror (about like the power wedges and polished stainless exhaust tips when new). Thumbup.gif

Please dont mind a minor thread hi-jack. I wonder if it's possible to convert my old styole Morse shifter, with one like this? If it's possible, do you think you keep the same cables?

Thanks,

Steve B.

It's the MV 2, bozboat. I'll see if I can get a pic. It has the pull out neutral knob, and the round lifter thing up at the knob, to allow the shifter to go forward or reverse. I believe it's a two cable system, one for throttle and one for tranny?

Thanks,

Steve B.

I believe you described the one on my boat. I replaced the black plastic knob with the chrome and red knob and sanded off the paint, otherwise it is as you described
