47 Panhead Harley Detail for Easy Rider Mag - 09-09-2013, 10:47 AM

The local indy Harley shop I do detail work for built this 47 panhead machine. Easy Rider Magazine is going to do a photo shoot and feature it. I was asked to do a show room detail on it. I used all Poorboys World products...I polished the paint and metals with pro-polish and pro-polish 2 and black hole glazed for the POP...The rubber I used bold & bright...

looks great. i have 1 question, why use a glaze for final protection?. glazes contain fillers that hide some left over swirls not removed from polishing so why use one? why not finish the job with a nice wax or sealant? the bike looks great! nice work Dave!

The reason I used the glaze on the polish was for the POP factor only. This bike is a garage queen and the paint is in near perfect condition. I also had done a full detail on this bike last year where I had done a sealant wax treatment...This was just to get the bike super clean for the photo shoot and I was thinking the glaze would make it POP a lot more than wax or sealant...just a personal choice was all

Thanks

super nice, old school baby. at least they put a spring loaded seat on it to help that rigid frame from beating the rider to death.

I have only done one bike and that cured me of that $hit. I can only imagine what goes into making one ready for a professional photo shoot. Looks great.

I was the same years back, but when I got the opportunity to work with this shop that changed. I get to use their scissor lift that gets the bike at eye level, huge advantage...then I have a small jack that I can lift each wheel to really dial them in. Along with developing different processes and tools, it's not as hard as one thinks.

That was before Harleys were yuppie bikes. Old guys (like me) need to pee after getting our kidneys beaten up.
