Bored as Hell... so....

... I took out my winter set of wheels, because that's all I've got in my garage, due to some ass that hit my car, I had to give it to a body shop... so I cleaned what I had in my garage.... My OCD got the best of me...
Front wheels (), couldn't remove the brake dust with anything.... it was so burned in.

so I used some wet 1500 grid sand paper ( ) only on the insides, and there was progress...




I clayed and waxed the outsides, and after 4 hours there were as good as new . Just as they came from the dealership 12 years ago.

Even the spare rim got the royal treatment:


I miss my car.....

Trust me I know it looks horrible but it is a "winter set" so don't care as much.
