powdercoated rim oxidation NEED HELP!

Discussion in 'That'll Buff Right Out' started by resident_asshole, Jul 25, 2003.

  1. My car sat for a few months and didn't get washed, now my rims are all messed up and have some killer oxidation on them. Any ideas of what to use? Someone suggested wd40 and said it's good and cleaning it up if I wash it off after rubbing it on real quick. ANyone heard of this? I was thinking a clay bar but that just sounds like to much a pain in the ass, but if I need to I will.





    Hoping you can help guys!

    I can't help you with the cleaning part, but if you do use WD-40, make sure you don't spray any on your brake rotors. :) If you do, make sure to go back and hit it with some brake cleaner before you drive off.

    Or just drive fast enough so when you hit your brakes it burns off before you notice that they're slipping... :hs:
