Indeed zz. I was just preoccupied with finding the full set of 53 Wheel covers.
Fodder for build funds.

Down here it will dry within an hour or so and you can make it shine a little with some buffing. Mines not all that smooth so I skip that part...
Im fixing to do mine again. I'll post before and after shots somewhere.
That seems to be the product of choice Smallfoot.
Mrs T even suggested adding a bit of Beeswax to it. Hmmm.
Not like I don't have about 50 LBS of it here.
We will see.
Any one else care to share what they use. If anything?
