    Default Ready for winter.

    As I had the chance today I thought I would get my motor,s paint ready for the winter weather.
    So I gave it a good wash and Towel dry.
    Then with a machine polisher. I used Megs#82 to remove any swirls(though there were little to non to remove) and also to remove any "old" wax.
    Then I went over the paint again with AG. SRP to "clean" the paint and leave it as a good base for the sealent.
    Lastly I put a coat of KP1000p on. I am testing this out over winter to see is it is any better than Colinite 915. I know KP1000p is a whole lot easier to put on and take off than Colinite 915.
    On the wheels. I put a coat of Planetpolish Wheel seal and shine.
    All the black trim got a coat of "Back to Black".
    The windows I gave a coat of AG SRP.
    Here are a few photos. Of what is probably the most waxed motor on the forum. The light was not too good as the sun was over the rear of the house.

    Your motor will Look real nice. You can have a choice of any of the products Phil and I have. I have a very good choice of Wax,s and sealents you can choose from. As to the polish I have quite a few to choose from too. But we will use the best to bring your motor up the the best it can be broiught to.
    Yes hopefully your mates will be jealous.
