    Fran treat yourself to some Gtechniq C5 , the stuff is expensive but one hit with this stuff and the wheels are sealed for almost year, i'm holding the mine back ready for the wheel's for Project Polo.. Poorboys is also good and half the price of C5..

    A Sealants acts like a wax but will/can last longer. We use paint sealants more so during the winter months.

    hi mate its a mix of two colours sprayed at the same time basicly one over the other while still wet so they blend into each other , the colours i used were honda new deep bronze and ford panther black to give them a bronze/redish/greeny tint to the paint , glad you like it
