Icon2 HOW DO MAKE MY BIKE SHINY??

I bought a spray to make the chrome on my silencer shiny. i also wanted to polish my frame with it too. I tried putting it on my rims too. BUT IT DIDNT WORK. i followed all the directions. I really want my frame polished...

DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO DO THIS?

WHAT PRODUCT SHOULD I USE AND WHAT SHOULD IT SAY?

HOW DO I POLISH MY FRAME, EXHAUST, AND RIMS TO MAKE IT SHINY? DO I RUB IT FOR MINUTES...? DO I USE A WET TOWEL?..

It takes hours to polish a CR frame to make it shiney. I helped a friend do his and we used 2 electric buffers with aluminum polshing compound. Its not something you can just rub on then rub off and its mirror finsh. Go to the auto parts store and get some aluminum buffing/polishing compound and a old towel. For the frame you might have to use some fine sand paper, then polishing compound.

If you have an aftermarket silencer, it's more than likely clear anodized
aluminum. You can clean it up with a Mothers or Flitz ball on a hand drill
and some aluminum polish, same thing for your rims.

Your frame is another story. The CR frame spars are extruded aluminum.
In order to polish, you will need some power polishing equipment and
various rouge compounds along with some skill on how to use them.

If you really have to have the "bling" look, be prepared to spend many
hours on the project.
