Screaming Pipe Salvation

I am in the process of detailing a very dirty Harley Davidson this weekend, bikes owned by a friend who loves riding but not the cleaning and it shows...

Today I tackled his Screaming Eagle pipe which had picked up a dreaded plastic shopping bag a few days ago, and was in need of serious salivation!!!

Decided to gentle hand wash the pipe with soft sponge and water, dryer using a soft terry towel, then I used a black and decker heat gun, set on highest heat setting, focusing the heat directly on very small sections, wipping the heated liquid plastic with a clean section of the soft terry cloth until the plastic was removed, then I used nevr-dull, and buffed with another clean new mircro fibre towel I thought the result was excellent and seemed to work really well, I'll post some pictures shortly of the before and then the after results.

Sunday ill tackle the rest of the bike which is also in need of desperate attention
