Got a dandy. I'm prepping my bike to sell and the Laminar Lip is "OK," but scuffed some in spots. Local body shop told me to use Meguiars Ultimate Compound followed by wax.
Took a bit of work, but I'm impressed by the great job it did - the Laminar Lip looks almost new. (BTW, I rode the bike with the stock windshield - without the Lip installed - and was amazed at the wind in my face. The thing really works)
Going by that, I have a black Acerbis front fender that is also "OK," but scuffed some, so tried the compound on a portion of the rear of the fender as a test. OK, it smoothed it out completely and easily, but left it with a dull finish. Not a problem.
Then waxed it, same as the Laminar Lip that worked so well. Nope. The fender didn't shine up. Went thru the whole process again and the test portion of fender is still dull.
What did I do wrong - or what didn't I do right ??
