    Detailed my GP1300R

    Friday night I decided that I wanted to do a full detail on the GPR for the first time since I've had it. The previous owner didnt seem to care for the ski well aesthetically, and I am completely anal about keeping it looking perfect. I took out some of the deep scratches on the top side, as well as swirl marks and other buildup on the surface.

    Here's the process I used (in order from start to finish):
    wash w/ meguiars gold class
    menzerna super intensive polish w/ a cutting pad (rotary)
    menzerna PO106ff polish w/ a polishing pad (rotary)
    ClearKote Red Moose Machine Glaze (orbital)
    Pinnacle Souveran Wax
    Poorboys EX-P Sealant

    And here are the results.....

    nope, just used soap and water and then used an all purpose cleaner to clean it.
