    Re: Forum Members Attending Detail Fest

    After wintering in Daytona the past few years with conflicting scheduling looks like I'm going to finally make DF one day or the other. :)

    '87 IROC Z-28 Detail

    Haven't done a lot of recent detailing but there aren't many of these left running around so I thought I'd share. Abbreviated writeup, I don't know how some of you folks find the time. Since I...

    Re: Big Thanks to Chris@Optimum

    I've also become a devotee of ONR on rubber and trim. Relieves the pain-in-the-neck of working around Raised White Outline tires.

    I've always had outstanding and timely responses from Chris on...

    Re: Opti-Coat on a motorcycle....

    Opti Coat proved it's worth in spades spending this winter in Florida. I originally tried it to try to impart some hardness to the super-soft H-D Vivid Black paint. It worked! Not only is it more...

    Re: Product for Motorcycle Windshield

    I polish my aftermarket shields with various polishes and 3" Griots when it really needs it. I carry an 8oz can of Plexus and a couple of MFs in the saddlebag when on the road. Covering with a damp...

    Re: Motorcycle Ride Report for DetailFest

    I was going to blast down from Daytona on the bike but brought my mutt down for the winter and didn't have anyone to take care of his furry keester while I was gone. Maybe I'll get him a sidecar......

    A pet hair brush brings sand and small particulates to the surface.

    Rubber Pet Brush

    Brush & vac, brush & vac...lather, rinse, repeat. Sand is time consuming and a bit labor intensive but...

    Re: Very finicky soft paint:)

    I beat my head against the wall trying to get super-soft Harley Vivid black to finish without haze or micromarring. I borrowed an improbable fix from Nick Chapman and tried finishing polish with an...

  12. Re: Harley Davidson Road King - extensive detail with EXO

    Good idea to have the owner remove anything that needs removed.... seat, bags, console, side covers etc. Parts are pricey if you break something. You probably know by now but the covers simply pull...
  13. Re: Harley Davidson Road King - extensive detail with EXO

    There's a definite difference in paint on tin vs fiberglass. I'm betting you found the fiberglass side covers easy to correct and finish. The tin on baggers is formed and finished at the York, PA...

    Harley's Vivid Black is the softest most miserable-to-finish paint I've ever worked on, I've owned 4. Just when you think you've...

    Re: Opti-Coat on a motorcycle....

    Sounds like an even trade for a scissor lift, JUMBO compressor and all the tools you can carry. After all, that OC/OG is kinda pricey :D

    Re: Opti-Coat on a motorcycle....

    You're kidding me! I found OC to be the only thing that doesn't burn off the pipes immediately. Had it on the exhaust on all 3 bikes and it's still there 6 months later. Makes cleaning the exhaist a...
  18. Sticky: Re: How To: Detail Your Engine Like a Professional

    Armor All Tire Foam isn't something I like to use on tires but it works well on those underhood heat pads. Fairly good cleaning capabilities and it leaves a dark matte finish. If the pad is seriously...

    Re: Cleaning Fly Droppings from Auto Paint?

    Chances are those "fly droppings" are actually artillary fungus if you park near mulch beds. They appear small and dark brown and when fresh scratch off with a fingernail. Tarminator or Tar X may...

  21. Re: How do you get white wall tires white again?

    As mentioned, Westley's Bleche Wite has been the standard for eons. A wheel brush works for all but the worst stained white walls and RWLs. On the stubborn ones I use a brass-bristled brush and let...
