was greeted this morning to a wonderful day... the sun was out and the day warm, so what better way to spend it as SWMBO hasn't arrived home yet than outside doing car stuff...
A bit of Marvin Gaye and Bob Dylan wafting through the air waves and was in the zone...!!!
Dragged the wheels out of storage and whilst i had cleaned them thoroughly prior to the new tyres going on they have zero protection.
So a quick wash and scrub and dry off, there were still some spots of tar so they were polished off.
Then i waxed and coated... my products of choice...

inner barrels were treated the same as the fronts

and all 4 little ducks lined up....

these wheels are typical of why i hate diamond cut faces, the slightest of nicks in the lacquer and the bare aluminium starts to oxidise and look meh...!!!
I really would like to swap them out for a genuine set of the RS6 style 5 spoke the car came with from the factory. One day...!!!

Current stable.....
