The owner purchased this bike brand new and after years of use the paint was beginning to show many defects. The owner was not happy with many of the scuffs and scratches on some of the areas of the bike, along with the swirling that was present.
This is a picture of the bike just after being dropped off.

The wheels and most of the chrome were pretty dirty and in need of a good cleaning.
As with most bigger bikes there was quite a bit of bugs splattered all over the bike.
More bugs and road debris on the front of the front fender.
One last before photo showing a rather large scuff on the front fairing. The bike was then thoroughly washed with various brushes and sponges to get it fully cleaned and ready for the correction process.
Correction & Coating Process
The fairing was taped off for a test spot to begin the correction process. The results of the compounding process were quite good.

The finish now looked stunning and the metallic finish really came to life after the paint coating was applied.
Quick walk around after the bike was finished.
Gtechniq Crystal Serum looked stunning on this bike.
The paint was extremely slick and glossy.
