halfrauds and petrol station sponges are a big no no because of the silicone added to it.

this is a zymol sponge, iv used a microfibre mitt and a lambs wool mitt so i thought i would try the other most used method of a zymol sponge to see which one i prefer :lol: i will report back with my findings and pictures after my detail on friday afternoon

:)

Look forward to your results! It sure doesn't look like what I would consider a natural sponge.

Quick Q for the experts:

When applying wheel sealant, do you to the whole inside of your alloy wheels? Just wondering as I was doing it yesterday and it's a real pain to access the inner bits - do you just do the spokes?

ideally you want to do the whole of the wheel.

i took all of my wheels off when i sealed mine and i put about 4 coats on.

if u cant be bothered then u don't have to but it will help if you do when its new instead of trying to get lots of brake dust off

One other thing, has any one else noticed the paint come off the locking wheel nut on the alloys? or is that just me?

Went out this morning and couldn't resist taking some beading shots. This is what two coats of Autoglym HD and one of Dodo Red Mist can produce...
