R6 Reborn (Detailed) LOTS of PICS

Well I've detailed my car plenty of times and I had a friends ask for my help with his bike. I finally got to get my hands on it and wow I underestimated this bike. Not only was it full of dirt and tar but it had some previous blemishes I did not see until after the wash. I took about 6 or so hours to wash which I did 2 times, tape off everything, polish, wax, wipe down plastics, rims, tires, brakes, gauges, etc. Enjoys the transformation and I'm pleased to say it came out great! I'm not a Pro Detailer but I do know how to get cars looking good. By the way this is my first bike detail. Enjoy

Before Pics...






Now after the wash, keep in mind I washed it off twice! As you can see the bugs where etched into the paint and would not come out with a simple wash.




As you can see the bike was full of etched bugs and scratches..





Now The Work begins I took care of as much as I could of the blemishes. The bike had been ran into by a car while parked and once laid over.




I tried to get this scratch to show it was pretty bad..



I then polished all aluminum pieces and billet parts as well.



Now the finished product!







Remember the Gas Tank full of scratches....

Tons better..

Scratch gone...

This one tons better as well....

All and all a very eventful detail... even though the bike is maybe 1/4th the size of my car it took a while but the end results are well worth it! I know it's not a 335 but it's something I thought you guys would like to see.

Thanks for all the kind words, trusted me as soon as I got done washing it. I knew I was in for something crazy. I'm just happy I was able to polished out some of those huge defects.
