    Just had some custom pinstripping done on my '08 FLHT. Forgot to ask the artist what not to use when I decide to polish or wax the bike in a few days. He used an enamel based paint, and I don't want to mess up the pinstripes. Hoping the Lemon Pledge is acceptable, but need advice and suggestions from those with experience. As always--TIA!

    Pledge will be fine:D

    Whenever I pinstripe I give it a 1200 grit wetsand and use a urethane clear over it if it is in a high wear area's

    I should add to this that stripers normally use a lettering enamel designed to set up quickly .

    Yep, pledge will be fine but I would let it set up a week or so just to be on the safe side. No fresh paint should be waxed right away.

    Thanks for the quick replies---I'll let the paint cure our for a week before I do any polishing. Guess I'll live with a dirty bike 'till then!:D
