Default Thank you.

Thanks man! I've got chrome rims on my f 150 that are a mother to get that brake dust off. "Your not cool if your chrome don't shine".

I spray that stuff on while the rims are dry and cool.. take a toothbrush for the nooks and crannies.. spray it again.. then hose it off.. sometimes ( if I did a lot of hard braking and lots of brake dust ) I would spray a third time before washin it with water.. cause as soon as you spray water on it.. it dilutes the stuff if you try to apply it again.

Spray 9 works great. Just watch the dirt come off. #1
