Great transformation Jim. Nice motor cycle too.  :cool:

Blimey, had they been washing it with a brillo pad? :shocked: Great result Jim :smiley:

I’ve seen quite a few ‘befores’ in a similar condition over on Detailing World. I think I’d have sleepless nights if mine ever looked like that.  :grin:

Thanks, its a friend's garage but I've ridden the Thruxton and its a great fun!

The funny thing is that it did look ok when washed, only when you get the lights on it that you could see it was mullered!

Wow! Makes me feel a bit better about my (‘clean’, by comparison) dirty car. Perhaps an anti-detailing thread is needed.

That’s the thing I hate most about this time of year; wash the winter’s worst off the car, and in no time at all, it’s dirty again.

Of course it is. They are all clean under the dirt.  :grin:
