Paint protection

Post  Ghostbandit on Mon 14 Dec 2015, 1:01 am

Hey all, thought I'd share some pics of some top notch paint protection I just had added to the big blue girl, the pics don't do her justice, some seriously good stuff, makes the paint like glass. It's called opti-coat plus cost $350 to get done, and the guy even applied the leather treatment to my holeshot Corbin seat aswel as giving the bike a whole detail:D

Looks great. Is it applied as a whole bike or are parts removed and treated?

 Applied as whole of bike, I would hate to think how much it would be if it was to fully disassemble  Shocked

I guess I was wondering about how they protected the important bits Laughing
I'll see if there is a Victorian connection because I reckon the VFR1200 could do with this.

 Yea it would be great if they fully stripped and dipped it. The only thing I was told was to make sure the person doing the work gives a crap, if the paintwork underneath isn't 100% clean when this stuff goes over the top it will seal in the crud. Luckily the guys that have done mine, love their work and are extremely passionate about it

Any special follow-up required, or just normal wash and polish?

Nope once applied, try and give it a solid 30 days to fully harden and cure, then when you need to wash just use a ph neutral wash, was recommended to use the meghuires soft wash, and I will just use my microfibre cloths like I used to.
