Wax

Today, i tried a new spray wax, by Lucas. Looks great! What do you guys with 3M/vinyl stripes use to clean them?

Just finished installing the Lethal Performance h-pipe to go with my Pype Bombs. Now I need to invest in some resonators to tame some of the rasp.

No video yet. There's a bit of rasp I need to get rid of with resonators tomorrow, so I'll probably do a before and after.

I'm more interested about maintenance. I'm 80% sure engine degreaser would mess it up but I could be wrong. I know for a fact WD40 don't play we'll with dip.

Hardest part was pulling out the stock knob. It requires some force while being careful not to rip off the o/d wires off the button itself. After that everything else is a breeze.

It's like $30-ish for a new o/d button, isn't it?

Plastidip cleans up pretty good with rain x! Wipe it and it'll be blotchy but I dries with a nice smooth finish

I've been using Simple Green on my X's wheels. Requires a little scrubbing with microfiber (crazy brake dusts) but it cleans up really good.
