    Default Beading

    Been a while since I did any detailing, it's just been too cold and miserable over winter. Anyhow, just wanted to check...is it good when the water does this?



    ETA: Just realised it doesn't actually look that impressive in the picture but it was. Really. Honest. It was.....

    not often you see beading on wheels

    surely, you used some wheel wax?

    Actually, not wax! Had them off to give them (and the arches) a proper clean, and quickly gave them a coat of AG EGP, hoping it would make them easier to clean.

    I'm waiting for Auto-Brite to get the Chemical Guys wheels stuff in stock, but the EGP looks OK for now

    They do look good , But as Harry said not often you see good beading on wheels the wax does not last too long due to the heat and harsh conditions.

    Yeah, I know But after I'd spent so long getting them clean I wanted to put something on to help them stay like that. I'm waiting for the Chemical Guys wheel stuff - anyone used it or got any comments?

    Poorboys WS is great stuff.

    I did a friend of a friends car a few months and I bumped into him on Monday and he said "whatever you did to the alooys worked, the brake dust comes off very easily".
