    Whoever you are beta-testing this chrome polish for, tell them to get it to market as-soon-as-possible (or at least by April 2020, in time for the start of the bike season in the Upper Midwest).
    Living in Wisconsin where H-Ds are made, there are literally tens of thousands of HD owners in WI (The Harley-Davidson Owner`s Group, or HOG) who NEED this chrome polish for their motorbikes and the amount of chrome that is associated with them.
    I also note that you used Griot`s Garage Perfecting Cream AFTER using this beta-tested polish on them and, I assume, used the 22ple VM/1 as the coating/LSP for protecting the chrome. Was this coating applied to the exhaust pipes, as I assume it might burn off when the engine/bike is ran for some time?? When you say 1" and 2" foam pads, who is the pad manufacturer(s) and what is the foam type/color(s) that you used with the beta-polish and the GG Perfecting Cream?? (I can see you beta-testing some hook-and-loop (Velcro) finger-tip ringlets/covers/gloves for hand-use with these smaller pads! OR just finger-tip foam pads by themselves! Good idea? Yes, I know; "Invent one, Captain Obvious.") Thanks for giving us Autopians some details of your methodologies for chrome. Getting chrome "corrected", as you alluded to, is a real nightmare for many detailers (at least for me!).

    I am also amazed at how well the leather cleaned up with the McKee`s Leather All-in-One (AIO). Most bike leather gets pretty dirty and dried-out from so much extreme exposure to the outside elements. Do you have a personal preference on leather-care products and methodology for taking care of such leather on bikes OR convertible cars with leather? I do know that the (one) motor-cycle I have cleaned, the owner was adamant about NOT making the seat "slippery", for obvious reasons!

    Excellent results and the photo outside on the driveway of your home and garage looks like it belongs there. Then again, I say that about EVERY vehicle you detail.


    Thank you very much!

I also did the pipes. We will see how long it lasts on them, they do get rather hot!

    I used some 2" blue and white Adams pads. The 1" pads I`m not sure of the manufacturer, I don`t remember where I sourced them, although I did use a few Rupes pads.

    The metal polish worked well and I liked the finish that the Perfecting cream gave it afterwards.
