    Re: Started the disassembly last night - Deep Clean and Detail

    Can you imagine what this would cost if you were paying someone to do it?

    The process you are going through is a perfect example of why questions like "How much should a full detail cost"? or "How long should it take to do a full detail"? are so subjective. Way too many variables involved.

    I actually see the process you are going through as bordering on "restoration" and not your typical "detail".

    lol....on the inside of the rear fender is a small triangular housing that protects the rear tail light assembly electrical molex connection, it's bolted and kept in place by a small nut and washer....that got removed, scrubbed inside and out with a toothbrush, dried....and sealed....but only after i washed the inside of the fender

    how do you charge for that?

    Clearly the best way to do it, Caffeine. If you have the time it gets done right!

    I've watched a lot of videos on guys detailing bikes and there are some amazing outcomes.

    A lot of what I did will never be seen or appreciated by anyone other than me.

    Re: Started the disassembly last night - Deep Clean and Detail

    It is finally done. I spent about 60 hrs total. It was pretty dark last night when I put the final pieces on, so no pics yet.

    I am going to try and get some pics tonight if possible.

    Go figure, I've spent 2 solid weeks detailing this bike and the first day I can ride it....it's raining.

    I know this post is worthless without pics, but I promise to put together an extensive before and after.

    Edit: Added the below pics as a sneak peak.

    Re: Started the disassembly last night - Deep Clean and Detail

    Really enjoyed reading this. I get it, when you start detailing something of your own it's hard to draw that line. That being said, the steps you took are crazy thorough. But I'm sure when it was done it was such a good feeling of accomplishment, till the first bug hit. Nice job! and nice bike.
