autosol or peek ,belgom alu all great for polishe alloy
turtle wax or armourall to seal it ,tho it will need regular attention to keep it smart
think of it as therapy ,"had a hard day ?,wife and kids gettin on your tits ?,
go to the sanctuary and polish ,feel those angst ridden times melt away as your knobbly tyred temptress shines before your eyes ,ohh yeah she loves a good buffing "
you get the jist :lol:
