Keeping the Black.....Black.
Wondering if anyone has found a good product to keeping the black on these bikes looking good. While the engine components are of a semi-gloss black, many of the other parts are either black plastic or textured black powder coat.
The front intake and fender seem to take the most abuse from the sun. I'm not some detailing fanatic, but I do like to keep it looking good. Here are some of the products I've tried, all with limited success.
Any suggestions would help.
Armor-all : Greasy, not appropriate for all surfaces and attracts dust like an alcoholic to a distillery.
Turtle Wax Trim restorer: Lots of work to work it in, buffing, blah blah blah, only lasts 2 washes at most.
Mothers Back to Black: Probably the worst of the bunch. Leaves a film on textured surfaces.
S100 engine detailer: Only works on engine components, hard to prevent getting it where it should't go.
