Paint protection

Hi folks,

I'm an avid ACF50 user for all my bikes but I was thinking on going a step forward and look at paint protection options here, either nano coating or clear bra.

Has anyone done it to their bikes? Any shop to recommend (hopefully near Cork) ?

Any idea around costs?

Cheers,
Rami

R & G do stuff. And Eazyguard. Both come in kits that you apply. Neighbour has the Eazyguard on his bike, good kit.

If you ask me, it really is. Look at the pics on the GS I have for sale, I use that bike rain or shine every day of the year and the thing is spotless. And I'm not the guy that washes the bike every 2 seconds either, so I really believe that it makes a huge difference. Plus the bike looks unreal after you apply it.... which doesn't last long, but for a few days is like having a brand new bike again.

Re: Paint protection

ACF50 is great for corrosion protection etc if you ride all year round, id go through 3 cans a year with regular application / washing;. One of the other brands "muk-fcuk-off" or whatever they are called brought out a version, its shit , doesnt go as far and isnt worth it imo. Stick to the acf

for paint protection, as above, ventureshield or similar alternative.
