Title: ACF 50 Removal
Post by: a101960 on 18.02. 2018 13:03
Getting near to the time for waking the A10 up from its winter hibernation (always the optimist me) what is the best way to wash off the ACF 50? Car shampoo, plain water, or will it just wipe off?

Muc-Off is good stuff, not cheap. Buy cheap, buy twice.

Thanks for suggestions gents. I'm still undecided about what to use, I did try wiping, and although most of the ACF 50 was removed it still left a stubborn residual film that easily smears.

I leave it on to continue giving protection, the chrome is only dulled a little. Then on a really hot day with a gentle breeze (IE the one day of summer) they get a good proper wash with car shampoo. Then the A7 gets polished quite a bit to make it even more shiny (in between some rides). The A10 and Norton Model 7 are both oilyish rag anyway
