The object of detailing is to clean and polish while maintaining the integrity of your paint, chrome and windshield.

There is nothing worse than having your paint job full of swirl marks, scratched chrome and a windshield you cannot see through.

Stay away from abrasive products such as:

  • Wax
  • Sponges
  • Rags
  • Chrome polish

CLEAR COATS DO NOT HAVE TO BE WAXED. THEY WERE INVENTED TO BE THE PROTECTIVE COATING OVER YOUR PAINT. CAPTAIN RICHARDS BEST IS WHAT YOU SHOULD USE.

Most damage done to paint, chrome and windshields is with the cloth you use. Micro Fibers are the least abrasive cloth you can use and will help greatly to minimize swirls and scratches. Stay away from terry cloth, diapers, and sponges.

When you wash your bike or auto use Cherry Bike Wash. If saves a lot of rubbing around and time. If you have a lot of bugs you may have to wipe a little with a micro fiber cloth, but everything will easily come off.

Maintenance is a big deal when taking care of aluminum. If you use our BOMBS AWAY metal polish you can save lots of time and it seals at the same time. Periodically spend a little time on your aluminum, keeping it looking good without ending up with a mess.

There is no such thing as chrome polish. You can polish aluminum, but chrome stays the way it comes. All you will get from chrome polish are scratches and dull chrome. Also used to degrease, clean carpets, tile, grout, automobile interiors, white wall tires, engines, lawn furniture, kitchens, and anything else not harmed by water. Captain Richards All Purpose Cleaner and Degreaser is not made from animal fats or petroleum products like soap and other cleaners. You can wash, degrease, or remove stains from any fabric or material, quick and easy. does a perfect job without scratching. Gives you protection and more depth.

If you follow these steps and use good cloths and non abrasive products you can keep your machinery looking better than the day you bought it. This wheel is a 10 year old aluminum wheel and people think it’s chrome, but it’s not!! That’s what a good metal polish can do for you.

Someday you may want to sell or trade your machine and someone will always buy a bike or car which looks good and runs like crap before they will buy one which runs great and looks like crap. BOMS AWAY, and have fun.
