Never underestimate a good collection of hammers. Been there with the bushes too Pete. I got replica bushes from Yambits for my CT 3. One was okay and the other was undersized so if you can, if you can get genuine ones ( should you not have them ) i would buy them . 
Have you seen the 1969 AT1 in DK by the way?

Gear selector had very deep rust in places, so a bit of filing and polishing and it's ready for me to give it a bit of nickel plating.
Headlight ear had a nasty dent from what looks like a sharp edge, I forgot to take the before photo, but you can just about see it in the earlier photos.
Bit of tin bashing and the dent is all but gone.

Shocks are out of the Evaporust after four days and they came up far better than I expected.
I did give them a good going over with a brass brush before putting them in which certainly helped.
One of the fork covers looks great but since the other is corroded, I'll nickel plate them both.
Need to put the rack in Evaporust once I can find a tub the right size.

Yes, I think Pete's trying to fool us and had a set of brand new shocks hiding in the closet.  Those came out amazing.

I'm thinking your U.K. Evaporust has more kick than ours does here in the States. I have not been impressed with the few attempts I've made using the stuff. Those shocks look like new.

Just kidding, these are the ones I took off the bike.
You can see the rust on one damper spindle has damaged the chrome in places, and that one doesn't damp as well as the other.
The Evaporust I used on the shocks was fresh and the fork covers went in an old batch with a similar result, it is amazing stuff.

Bead blasted the petcock today and polished the rear brake arm ready for plating. Very satisfying
