Before and afters of a weekend spent detailing my new 600rr !

Hey guys, picked up my 2012 600rr last week, the paint on the bike was in terrible condition but being a full time car detailer this didnt put me off buying it one bit

Heres a couple shots of how it looked before :










And after many hours of buffing!








Looks better than new now!, time to go for a ride.

Thanks, I used an orbital buffer with a 3" backing plate and pads. 3 stages of scholl compounds followed by 2 coats of zaino z5 paint sealant and topped with pinnacle souveran carnuba

Nice man, where in QLD are you? I'm up in Townsville (figure you're down Brisbane way maybe?).

I have been using Bowden's Own stuff to detail my vehicles lately, seems to work awesomely and not expensive.

I'd rather be next to a rider that can maintain a controlled wheelie than a muppet on their phone.

I live on the gold coast haha I think we went over this on my newbie post

Bowden's own has some great products , probably some of the best stuff you can buy off the shelf here
