Posted by Les (Les), 12 March 2004Hi Mark
Once you've cleaned the wheels, Halfords of all places sell a product called 'Brake Dust Barrier' (about a fiver).
Easy to apply and once dry you can buff the wheels up to a really high shine with minimum effort .
And you can tell your customer that their valuable alloys now have a protector applied etc. etc.
My Valeting supply Co. don't sell it but don't know about 'Autoglym'
Posted by squeaky (squeaky), 12 March 2004Thanks for that Guys.
Posted by no_water_no_wet (no_water_no_wet), 19 March 2004 you can use a alloy cleaner but will not be able to remove any pitting , but the valeter i supply says after using alloy using glue and tar will then remove a lot more. when you have removed what you can use a protector such as no-wet.

When you finally get the wheels up to scratch can I recommend a coating of polymer alloy wax protection, this will help reduce the overall build up of dust and make them a lot easier to clean in future.
