I was over at my dad's and he had ordered one of those Simoniz fix it pens. I decided to try it on a scratch on the swing. BIG MISTAKE! The resin drys within 3 seconds. I could not wipe off the excess before it dried. I now have a streak of resin on the side of my swing creating an eyesore. Even on the part that was scratched, I could still see the scratch so in my opinion, this product is a complete and total crock. Does anyone have any experience with this product or have any ideas on how to remove this?

Ron,

There really is no free lunch is there?

Contact a body shop they may have some suggestions on how to remove the offending stuff.

Scratches seem to just be a part of the game. I must admit I am not terribly fastidious about washing and waxing our bikes. We really prefer to ride them and taking the greater part of a day to get them clean seems like such a waste of nice weather.

Dale,
Amen.
Too many years of dirt bikes in my past.

Jon,

I do like how nice and shiny the bikes look when clean, but... Maybe I'm just lazy.

Ron,

I'd really be curious to find out how you get this resolved.

When I was younger and really into my cars I used a rubbing compound to remove surface flaws. This stuff was mildly abrasive so potentially a risk on our thinly painted plastic parts. After the rubbing compound a good waxing returned the lustre of the original paint. Keep in mind that the finish on a 1960's automobile was very different from our SilverWing "paint job".

I really think a good body shop may be able to advise you best on how to get the stuff off of your body panels. I think trying a bunch of chemical products could result in a weird science project.

Ron I hope you find an answer to removing the resin. Possibly a shop that works on Corvettes or other fiberglass type auto's could give you advice. Good Luck.
Like Dale and Jon I'm not a fanatic on cleaning my scooter/motorcycle. I do wash them on occasion but not into the detailing process. But I do admire owners who take the time to keep theirs shining constantly. Some actually enjoy that as much as riding, kinda pride thing with these folks. I guess we are all in this two wheel adventure with different ideas but with a common focal point which is our scooters. My self I can really enjoy being in the garage and just tinkering with my rides or helping out a friend. The true enjoyment is seeing whats over the next hill. Ok, done rambling. Take care..Dick
