    Default Help Needed!

    AOA Everyone!!!
    I need help regarding by bike's tank. A part of my tank is getting dry I have applied polish on it many times but no success. A friend of mine told me to apply luster on it I applied luster and dry part was removed but as soon I cleaned it with a wet cloth is came back again! So I need your help regarding this what should I do to remove it?
    Thanks in advance.

    Its either faded or scratched. In either case it will need a re-spray to bring it back to former glory.

    Picture aint that clear, either upload clear pictures or we cant help you.

    Look closely at the effected area, is the top clear coat faded or the paint underneath the clear coat is also faded.
    If only the clear coat is gone then maybe...just maybe a treatment of rubbing compound or "rubbing polish" might help.
    If the paint underneath is faded then I'm afraid there is not much you can do.

    As you said applying luster made the problem go away,so im hoping rubbing polish we do the job.

    Applying Luster on your Tank? The F*ck? You crazy? Luster is ONLY for leather areas, or you can also apply that to shine Plastic Surface. (say, The Dashboard of your Car, or Meterbody of your Bike ... not even your Side Covers)

    It seems you are using some 3rd Class Wax on your bike which is why its not shining some areas the way it should do.

    Check the "Bike Detailing" thread throughly by r1. You'll find many tips and tricks there.

    DO NOT put boxes or satchels on your fuel tank. They are the main reason for such kind of scratches.

    I use Cosmic and it hides such scrubs perfectly well.

    I know luster is only for plastic parts or leather I only tested it because of my friend recommendation. Everyone gives different opinions someone says its because of petrol dropped at petrol pumps others say use compound polish and some says it can't be fixed.
    I also use Cosmic wax and its results are good.
    I don't even put helmet on tank and you are talking of boxes or satchels? No chance of that.
    By the way tomorrow I will get formula1 scratch out and see what happens

    paste a close up picture..If color is faded get it compounded by a painter..luster on paint man you are crazy..It eats up paint..You apply only a wax for paint protection nothing else..The ones recommending you luster on paint are strawbrained idiots.
    The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status, is that, deep down inside, we all believe that we are above-average drivers.
