The paint was just getting atrocious on my ET3 - I commute on it regularly, and I think the weather and sun were just taking their toll. Tons of new rust spots left and right and the sheen of the paint had just vanished.

So, I decided to put it in "stasis" and shine it up a bit in the process. Touched up all the rust spots with POR-15, and then did two rounds of Maguiar's Mirror Glaze 7, followed by a light single spray+wipe of Maguiar's wax.

Many will likely question the aesthetics of my POR-15 spots, but it's amazing how well the old bird cleaned up

After #1 - haven't even waxed it yet, this is just after the two rounds of Maguiar's #7

I just did pretty much the same thing with my SprintV and it's like it's a whole new bike.

It looks great! I'd ride it any day!

That looks fabulous - Definitely not lipstick on a pig! She's more like a blue butterfly with black highlights. Good job!
