How To Protect And Fix Matte Paint?

I don’t have to tell you how popular matte paint has been during these last years. Harley-davidson proposes its own version, in Black, White and Crimson Red. Some are hesitant about ordering this type of paint job and others are  concerned at the first scratch. Why? Because contrary to glossy paint that you can buff to “new” condition if the scratch is not deeper than the clear coat, matte paint cannot be buffed out the same way. Harley-davidson issued several Service Bulletins giving Denim Paint care instructions and clearly stating that if trying to buff out a scratch, nick or scuff your paint will become less matte and more glossy over time…

Enters , a company specializing in optically clear paint protection film products sold in kits. Their more recent product is called  Matte Finish Film™ and can be applied to denim painted parts on Harley™ motorcycles.  This new film protects the silky matte finish of denim paint from damage and cannot be seen on the bike.  It does not change the denim appearance of the paint, and even “repairs” (optically because of the adhesive in the film) existing minor scratches and scuffs!  Easy to apply (15 to 20 minutes states the manufacturer), easy to remove and with a lifetime warranty. Many HD dealers are now promoting this product to existing owners of denim painted bikes through their parts department and are “automatically” adding Finish Film™ to their denim rentals and new bike sales through the Chrome Consultants.

    @jason. Why don’t women get that we can see every nick and scratch on our rides? They act like its no big deal while we spend the next hour buffing everything out.
