I was gonna say "How can you be bored, you have a Bonnie !".

Love those wheels, fun to clean aren't they? I use a baby bottle brush.

Those wheels are the biggest PITA to clean. Definately the hardest wheels I have ever cleaned. I cleaned the ones on the Turbo Grand Prix one day. It took me like 2 or 3 hours IIRC, and thats not including the extra trip I had to make to autozone to buy some more wheel cleaner. (it took 2 bottles). But, that was probably because the wheels hadn't been cleaned other than just being sprayed at the car wash the whole time we had it. (at that point it had been 8 months) And they looked really good for about a week after that. Now they look like a$$.

Nice looking clean Bonnie BTW. Great job cleaning the wheels.

I don't think they are all that bad to clean, I switched to ceramic pads and they don't get as dirty. I gave them a real good scrub when I put them in storage, soapy water, and Simple Green really shined them up good.

They aren't bad to clean if you just run your finger in circles in the holes after shooting it with some cleaner.
I like the sig shot, that 7up silo'* always nice on the way up to the cities.

Nice shots, Seth. Clean car, shiny...

I need to get those ceramic pads, too. My rims aren't hard to clean, but I have to often...
