Any tips for cleaning over the Winter.

Just at the start of Oct i managed to get a clean, wax then a AG HD wax on top of that, but havnt got to clean the alloys, gave them a good clean maybe about 1 week ago, but the water still seemsto be running off them ok, thing is I think I applied teh 1000p back before the summer...how long could that stuff hold out?

Have BilBerry etc so thinking I can bring them up good again even if they fade a little!

I would say take your wheels off around about now, clean the insides aswell and give them 2 coats of FK1000P, that should keep them fine till spring next year.

I would also suggest using your 1000P on the paintwork over the winter. 2 coats of 1000P and 1 HD wax on top should see you out ok.

i found it fantastic to be honest.

the definition was amazing and iv hardly used any of it doing the whole car. id say i could easily do it another 4/5 times before the pot goes.
