All in the Details

The 959 Corse is a beautiful machine, but it needed a little detail to bring it to full beauty. Since setting up shop at Auto Body Detail Specialist and Trustworthy Motors, I have access to detail experts and tools so the Corse was the first of the Jenius bikes to take advantage. The New Ducati Performance rear stand kit saw it's first use and held the Panigale super steady while also enabling us to roll the bike around while on the stand.

Tools of the trade in action.
Detailing on hands and knees isn't ideal so I took him to harbor freight after this to pickup a lift. You will see this in future updates as this is what I will also be using to work on bikes at the shop.

After the detail it was time for details like this stuck on reflector hiding the beauty of the Öhlins front forks. A little heat gun and they came off easy enough.

After the detail I also noticed the stained stainless steel header pipes. I was going to clean these up with bartenders friend, but I'm thinking to remove them and ceramic coat black to keep them looking sweet for the long term.

This isn't that visable, but could also benefit from black ceramic coating.
