Got bored so polished the Alternator lol

Ive had a spare alternator for a while so thought Id clean it up a bit,
I stripped it down to polish the front and rear alloy casings,

They were cleaned,polished then given a clear coat to keep them that way,
while they were apart I sprayed the stator and pulley a nice satin black to match other little bits Ive already done under the bonnet,

Once finished I was happy with a few hours work.
