    Default parkerizing

    I Parkerized the footboards, and battery tray for my '51FL today. I encourage everyone to do that themselves for their bikes. It's easy, and fun and you get a pretty quick reward for your effort. Bruce Palmer gives a good primer on how to do that in this magnificent "How To Restore Your Harley-Davidson" books.

    I plan to get my rivets for the footboards from McMaster Carr.

    I didn't see the correct split rivet size on McMaster Carr. Any good suggestions of other suppliers?

    Thank you, Tom. The tough part is the head size which is 5/16" on the footboard rivet. I'll give Hanson Rivet a look. Thanks.
