Re­vive the shine

Say good­bye to scuffed cans and pegs

Kill the grease

Re­move the dam­aged part from the bike, tak­ing off any clips or fas­ten­ers along with it. Give it a thor­ough de­greas­ing to re­move road dirt and oil then rinse well.

Grab the file

To re­move sur­face scuffs, take a small file and lightly abrade the dam­aged area un­til it is smooth. Keep the file strokes in the same di­rec­tion if pos­si­ble.

Do pa­per­work

Now rub the en­tire part down with coarse sand­pa­per ( 180-240 grade). Then switch to pro­gres­sively finer grades (from 400 to 1200) soaked in wa­ter.

Pol­ish and buff

Ap­ply alu­minium pol­ish us­ing a grey Scotchbrite pad in one di­rec­tion, then re­move with a clean cloth. Buff to a high-shine with a mi­crofi­bre cloth. Re­peat if re­quired.
