    Default Brake dust barrier

    On to my second detailing question of the night. Does anyone know of a brake dust barrier spray that actually works?

    Over the last week I have seen two new products that claim to repel brake dust, but I am reluctant to buy anything unless it'll actually work

    Here are the two i've seen

    The armourall stuff looks amazing!

    Just noticed the Armourall stuff is now available in the UK, does look good on wheels, but brake dust is a bit different to mud.

    There was a thread on DW about this a while back, but it had previously only been available in the US. Buy it and test it mate.

    What?
    We've been stocking and selling this stuff for about 2 years...
    The majority of people pick it up, look at the price, then put it back; the rest stuff it under their jacket and run (and a small number don't even try to hide it as they leave)
    Sadly none of it has been near my car!
