Default show-room clean and finish

Technology and advancement collectively have come a long way pertaining to cleaning products for the plastic and metal on motorcycles.


Who can reccommend the best way to get that gleaming show-room finish without using a circular buffer?

Thats work i did on cars, now i use the circular buffer because it works 110% perfect. Now if you're trying to do this by hand you won't get rid of any swirls or scratches just cover em up. Meguiars NXT is perfect for that. Then use optimum protectant plus or some sort of plastic cleaner.
