Polishing the lips, and cleaning the windows
 
I've looked throught the seach function, but im curious if anyone has dicovered any new or better products that will polish that steel lip on your rim?

Also what are some of you using to clean the windows on the inside, keeping in mind the tints, and that certain cleaning products (with ammonia)can damage them?

Thanks

umm if you would be polishing the lip it would be aluminum...apparently power metal polish by mothers is really good

Autosol Metal polish is the only type of metal polish I use. Its awesome stuff!

matty.dc 04-22-2009 07:58 PM

Autosol Rocks!
It is abrasive, but nothing crazy

x2 for Autosol. Perfect for that high polish result.

Windex has ammonia in it, and will casue your tints to discolour. Big no no!*no-no*

I always used Autosol..thats the only metal polish i used. Lately i can't find any local suppliers though. Where do you guys get yours? Crappy tire used to have them.

For my windows i use Invisible Glass. Works pretty good.

^^^That's where I have been buying them too. I'll have to go look if the one near me still has any tubes left.

BTW, FYI, the mothers powerballs are on sale this week at canadian tire. I gotta go buy a mini.

for windows the best thing to use it a ringed out shammy. thats what the tint guy told me

You have to use the appropriate cleaner with it. I personally never tried it, but I will soon.
