    Default Cleaning inside arches...

    Got the week off before Billing to get my car ready so I'll be having the wheels off and everything to do the job right, but what should I use to clean in my arches and make them look nice??

    The cheap APC (All Purpose Cleaner) from places like Aldi or Netto is fantastic at cleaning your arches matey. Dirt cheap too.

    I can vouch for that. A toilet brush is perfect as well!

    Yep APC here too then........if you have the wheels off........an appllication of Megs All Season Dressing to plastic areas and wax to any metal areas.......not forgetting an application of wheel wax/sealant to the wheels themselves
