Morning,

So its time for me to buy a new glaze for the red paint work, and just wondered if anyone is using the ClearKote Red Moose Machine Glaze on there CTR.

Used to the Blackhole version on my old Black ST with brilliant results.

Detailed Obsession

would be interested to hear any reviews before i purchase

Thanks

Dal

Hi Dal

I agree lots of brake dust!

You sound pretty experienced at 'cleaning' so you probably already know this......

But my wifes car is now two months old. I just use an alloy wheel protector on the wheels and then wash them regularly with a hose/warm water & car shampoo/and dry off with a cloth. I put on a couple of coats of the protector to begin with and have then topped it up every couple of weeks. I haven't needed to use an alloy wheel cleaner once yet - and the wheels still look as new.

Hope this might help ;)

Indeed fella always good to put some protection on the alloys ( i only washed the CTR for the first time at the weekend)

I use this to get the rubbish off -

and then use this to protect them -

If you run out of your wheel protector a coat of polish like SRP will do the trick
