Paint Correction Pics...

Before and after pics of correction on the hard saddle bags on my 2009 Kawasaki Concourse 14…if you haven’t tried machine polishing because of a fear of damaging your paint…take a look at these.

This is only my second time using my PC and Adam’s polishes. The first time was some light correction on my Camaro...as you can see...this was some significant damage due to improper washing (by me )…I corrected the entire bike, but this was the easiest area to get pics of…

WOW! More pics of the bike... the flake in that paint just POPs now. You could barely see it in the before shots. Nicely done.

I'll have to see if I can take more pics tomorrow...I also used VRT and In and Out Spray on the plastic surfaces...looks awesome. Finished it off with some Buttery Wax.

Here is the process I used:

1. Wash with Adam's Car Wash and a few sprays of All Purpose Cleaner to strip old wax

2. Clay using Detail spray as lubricant

3. Wash again

4. Swirl remover

5. Fine Machine Polish

6. Dress all plastics with VRT or In/Out spray

7. Wax painted surfaces with Buttery Wax


I also included a few shots of the paint correction I started on my daily driver (2001 Impala).

Both look great... I'm loving the color on the bike though! That flake just vanishes in the shadows but jumps out so much in the sun its crazy!
