A long time ago I was a porter at a Harley Davidson dealership in the I.E. A guy used to come in named Little Joe (or as we called him at the shop Joe Angel). He was the V.P. of the Hells Angels in San Bernardino, a real scary guy. I used to like it when he came in because he would tip so well. We kept a case of this wax especially for him. We called it (the secretions of a thousand virgins). It was the best wax I have ever used.

To bad I don't remember its real name.:laughing:

Its like many things in life, how much you want to spend and the results required. Having an interest in motorcycle detail, I have used many products. Depending on your paint work etc, the condition. There are some great products on the market. Most professinoal vehicle detailers wouldn't touch Autoglym, I have seen the results of long term use of this product. There are some great products on the market, from Polish, Glaze, sealant and of course wax. I have even gone into best results on the colour red and silver. If you tell me the colour of your machine, I can advise further.
If you are looking for a show shine, then you will need to treat the paintwork. As follows,

Wash the paint work down with a good PH shampoo. Don't use a sponge, use a good sheep skin mit, doesn't scratch or swirl.

Now, depending on the age of the paintwork, I would most certainly recommend you clay the paint work and use a good lubrication. This removes dirt and general road crap from the paint, you will be amazed at the results. The end reslut is a far deepr luster in your paint finish

Then, use a good paint cleaner. This again removed the clay and anyother dirt etc. Also primes the paint work for the wax.

Now drying your machine. Do not dry or polish in circle motion, you will get swirls. Buy a good microfiber drying cloth, plenty on the market.

If you decided to use a good wax, then I always apply by hand. Heat the wax up in your hands before application. Depending on the make of wax, will depend on how long you leave it on the surface. Rub well in and leave for the recommend time period. Somthing like Swissvax can be left longer than Zymol, but they are both good products.

Removing the wax. Again, no circle motions, just up and down. Use a good deep pile polishing cloth.

For even better results, to finish, just a small spray of natural distilled water will also add to the end shine. Normal tap water isn't that great for the end finish.


For further info, have a look at this detailing forum. Don't waste your money without doing the research. So many peoples garages are full of lotions and potions which they have wasted their money on!

OK, a few products to look out for. They are NOT in a certain order!!!!


PH SHAMPOO

Zaino Z7
Sonus
Raceglaze Aqua Bathe
Zymol
Swissvax


CLAY

Meguires (Quick clay)
Zymol
Swissvax




PAINT CLEANER

Swissvax
Zymol
Dodo juice
Meguires




Wax

Zymol Concours
Swissvax Best of show

I have included products from both ends of the price scale. Remember, with a good carnuba wax, a little goes a long way!



Then, you can also go into various grades of carnuba wax. From pure brizilian white to various yellows and combinations. But I wouldn't worry about that
