I'm a car guy in addition to a cyclist. I have shelves covered with chemicals, cleaners, buffers, pads, polishes, etc. This weekend, I was working on my 20-year-old Klein... glanced at the buffer...

Did a 2-stage paint correction (mild polish, then finishing polish) then a ceramic paint sealant.

The requisite garage door pic:




The polishing was optional - it just makes it shinier. The sealant is what protects the paint from solvents, sweat, crap from the road, etc.

Oh no... sorry if my post misled ya - I just buffed/polished the original paint on the frame and fork. And, to be fair - it's a Klein, so the paint was pretty damn nice even two decades later.

Very nice indeed. I too use the same stuff on my bike as my car. Clay bar, swirl remover, sealer, etc. I know it's just a bike and I should just ride it but 1) I like it to shine when I ride, 2) It really doesn't take that long to do and 3) you end up fully inspecting the bike which is a good thing to do frequently.
