Blades are looking mint mate.

Need to look after them.

Are you going for colour coding next?

Yes, or pay the extra £300 on top and get a ready painted GP kit in NHB...

Then lower it of course.

Any tips on keeping them super clean?

I normally use the Auto Glym Wheel Cleaner, Sealant & Tyre Dress.

Does a good job but is there better out there?

Do it mate.

On special offer at the minute £120 from cox i think.

Like the blades they make a massive visual impact for a reasonable price .

Chucking it down in Cornwall today and my new lovely blades are absolutely filthy .
My drive to work takes me past the openings to about 12 farms and 40 cattle fields - farmers do my nut in! Well they do today anyway.

Im giving them the full auto glym treatment later.
Clean, brush, clean, rinse, dry, sealant & tyre dress!

And parking MILES from curbs, thinking about installing a big rubber surround like a dodgem.
