    A bit of a random post perhaps but ACF 50 related nonetheless?

    I have a black granite sink and draining board in my kitchen. Over time the black granite greys within the sink. WD40 is recommended elsewhere as a product to bring the colour and lustre back to stone sinks and drainers of all descript but it only brings it back up for a few days.

    I did mine with ACF 50 and whilst immediate results seemed disappointing in comparison to WD40 leaving the ACF 50 on overnight the results were outstanding. 3 weeks later the lustre is still there and hot water still beads on the finish.

    Did you ever buy yourself a can Dod?

    I have about 2 litres of Acf lol

    For granite use granite cleaner from a company called method and you can get a magic non toxic sponge to clean your sink..if that fails use isopropyl..I have a litre of that for when I cleaned the chrome prior to plasti dipping it on the bike

    Does acf 50 wash off with dedicated car / bike shampoos?

    Not a problem just means re-applying after washing.

    Do the winter riders not wash their bikes but prefer the acf-50 protection until the warmer weather returns before making their bikes sparkle again?

    It doesnt wash off with my bike wash ( muc off ) as when i rinse the bike i still see the water bubbles...

    In winter if i use the bike i always give the bike a wash then dry and then coat in acf as we have already have had our roads gritted up here and i prefer to take no chances...i know costwise using the acf it will add up but hey...no rust on the bike..no rust on the garden furniture either lol

    It should form a coating over the bike for about 12-18myths if applied properly and a wax layer applied over it.
    FTW )

    ACF50 resurrection time.

    Cleaned the Breakout to within an inch of it's life today and gave it the first application of ACF50 for this year. As long as the weather is kind and no salt gets dumped on the roads it is preparation for the Winter riding.

    Really, very very nice K9F. It's clear, like me, you take pride in the presentation of your Harley.machine. My family and friends know my story and I can't help referring back to it, whenever I'm caught cleaning the most obscure part of my bike, they cheerily moan and groan, but I left my beloved Northern roots for London in the 80s, with only £75 to my name. Years, decades later, I take pride in everything, my family, our house, cars, motorbikes and guitars, they've all come about through sheer hard graft, which means I take pride in all these things. Even got my very young grandsons learning to polish a Harley!

    My late father only went to school every third day, that's when he got the only pair of shoes he and his two brothers shared. He was born in 1909 in the East End of London and was 52 years of age when I was born. It was like being brought up by your Grandfather.
    He instilled in me that what you work hard for you need to cherish and look after, if you look after it, it will look after you, be it the smallest possession or a house, car or something else expensive. It can often be misdiagnosed as OCD but I do look after my gear. Thank you for the comments and yes I do clean the inside of the ends of my exhausts.

    Not OCD mate just pride in what you have and have achieved. I had a similar upbringing.

    AC50 good stuff for winter, sticks like the proverbial shite to a blanket and hard to wash off, but then again its protecting.
