Yea! Another local member! I have the same rims...PITA... I use a toothbrush and keep trying different degreasers to see what works best. Armourall seems to be winning so far with Simple Green a close second. Our WCBF convoy passed through your area about 6am this morning after driving cross country and back. Best trip in my life! Great group of people here. If you don't want to clear the lamps yourself, you'll have to drive out to the next NEBF (not sure when that will be) and clear them there.
Nice to meet you Neighbor!
