No glossifier, have been thinking about silver metalizer though.
All fairings, tank, wheels, upper triple, & fender are dipped.
Holds up well if you use more coats. Easier to remove as well.
I'll take a pic when I get home in the morning of the completed job.
I haven't had time since I put em back on. Here's another pic with all of the fairings in it though.

You have to use a white base for the green to really pop.
You can get it without, but it takes waaay more product.

Why didn't you mask off the bolt holes or bearings? I guess you can sort of peel it off, but still.

I'd recommend waxing the wheels too, makes them easier to clean.

You don't need any wax man.
They'll clean up just fine at a car wash, or with a semi soft brush & soapy water.
The shit's pretty damn durable.
Once it cures after you spray it (takes about 3-4 days depending on weather),
It's on like paint would be & ain't going anywhere.

The light colors get dirt pretty much embedded into them, white is one of the worst. They require serious cleaning with Simple Green or similar degreasers every now and then. No amount of soap/detailers will take out the major stuff, or the dust that gets stuck in the recesses on the spokes. The wax just makes this easier, and prolongs the periods between when you have to do that. With my waxed blaze yellow wheels I just take use a spray detailer and wipe them off once a week, but I will have to degrease them in about a month or so.

Also makes the stuff more durable. Check the DYC forums, lots of people recommend waxing.

Look at this video of this guy cleaning his white rims. They look almost gray: Cleaning Plasti Dip - YouTube

DipYourCar sells a product called Brake Dust Pro which seems to work really well.
