    Oh and what do you mean "one of the few things", its obvious we have a lot in common :friends:

    Thats what worries me, i don't want anything thats going to be abrasive

    PM N8 from Kowalski detailing....... not sure what he uses, since I had the car detailed a quick 5 minute jet wash brings it up like new. Well worth the money, most of the alloy wheel cleaning products will lift the grime off the pipes...... apply and wait 5 minutes or so for the spray/foam to do the work :icon_thumright:

    Please don't shoot the messenger, Health and Safety and ALL, but I use petrol; the deposits are products of petrol combustion after all.

    A quick wipe over with a rag/tissue dampened with petrol does it for me (non-abrasive too).

    I use Fairy Powerspray, rinse, wash with normal car shampoo, and Bob's yout Auntie. Bit of Iron-X if it is rerally stubborn. Then Optimum Metal polish to seal then but may try C5 next.

    I use dodo juice supernatural wheel cleaner... And I'm gonna try using their nano ceramic sealant on the tips as it worked awesome (albeit a bit expensive) on the wheels..

    Whatever works for you guys, but I need petrol for the mower/cultivator (for my beans/peas/potatoes/sweatcorn, etc) so I just dip a rag in that... Please remember my status here guys (68 today), I'm no longer mega earning like yous... :meeting: All abuse appreciated... :racer:
