Well everyone to make a long story short over the christmas break it iced here in Dallas and well my car is my daily driver so I had to drive in the sand/ice etc for 2 days straight...with that being said the following day I was heading out of town to my wife's parents house and I was going to be there through the New Year...roughly 2 1/2 weeks total. I parked my car at my rents house in the garage still covered in all the sand etc...well when I returned I was def missing my G and needed to go wash it so I headed to the car wash. After finishing washing the car I noticed little rust spots all over each one of my lips....I thought to myself well ****...I tried alot of different things before re-searching to try and get this crap off....Well after about 2 weeks of sunshine then rain etc...it actually was warm enough/sunny for at least the whole week I decided to really clean up the Car (today that is).
So After re-searching and speaking to members on the boards on how to clean this rust like/water spots off my rims to shine to perfection again I decided to show the products I used...nothing really expensive but household goods!!
Anyways enough chit-chat...I believe this probably works best for those up North members who have a daily driver and have to drive in ice/snow alot.
Here is what I was dealing with on my rims..you can see the little spots of rust/sand that has stained into the lip:
Products I used:
Typical Dawn Dish shop with some luke warm water and the products in the pics. I picked up the polish, microfiber, and SOS Pads from Autozone local.
Take the Steel wool cloth and Luke warm Water with Dawn Dish Soap and scrub around the Lip....Typically everything comes off in the first scrub. dont do a real hard scrub on it...Just nice and gentle.
In between shot..compairson..not to good though.
once the rim is scrubbed take the microfiber cloth and wipe around the whole rim. Make sure to take off all of the Dish Soap.
apply the polishing compund/wipe to the lip or rim depending on what you have...
Once you have applied the Polish to it take a seperate microfiber cloth and wipe all of the polishing off the rim and you should be complete. If you still see some residue after wiping the down the first application of the steel wool and dawn you can repeat the process as needed. If you have any questions let me know.
After the cleaning:
Mounted back up!
