    So I always had chrome rims so when your billet rims get dusty do you guys wash it before you polish the rims or hit it with a quick detailer then polish

    WHAT, calipornia duster and detail spray is all you need for the car, I just run a old micro fiber rag loosely to get the worst off and then some detail spray. Guess who was using my detail spray when we were in Daytona? Yep :chopper::oldlaugh:

    Mike that bike looks so go, you almost hate to ride it, and get it dirty! Really like that black cherry color, and you most have hit the chrome button, as it looks like you dipped. One hell of a job polishing it!

    My bike was shiny like that once -- then I bought it.

    If its nioce enough to polish it, its nice enough to ride it and I know which I'm doing -- besides until I get the lift table setup I can't bend over like that to do that work anymore.
