    I was out in the barn working and I looked over at the K9 and I had an idea so I tried it , now keep in mind my motor was already highly polished but looked smoother after the latex polish(no camera filters used)

    Kevin.... That is beyond sweet! What is the "latex polish" you reference? The "glove" method on the paint stick, or a specific polish? AWESOME! Now I have to set aside some time to properly detail.

    Initially I polished it when I got the bike with regular mothers mag polish and white diamond but today I quick tried mothers billet with the latex glove and paint stick it made it shinier and smoother

    That’s how I did my bike and dads both. I used my bare finger guess that’s the ghetto in me. But I’ll try the gloves next time. No scratches or swirl marks. Bling bling

    What's next? maybe the end of a wooden pencil in the glove to shine inside the bolt heads.

    For sure; however, the BBC Sled has a lot more chrome vs. aluminum; i.e., triple trees, front end, rims, controls, etc.
