    Same here, membership pays for itself after on order...Forced rotation on the Flex definitely speeds things up...

    I use PBL wheel coating, makes cleaning a breeze. I don't use any special wheel cleaner, just rinse with water and dry. I also use an IPA/dawn mix in between washes to do touch up. As for sealants, Poorboys is good and so is jet seal 109. Hope this helps...

    James, I can send you a "sample" of the jetseal, got some on my last order. I need to find a bottle to transfer some. Free of course...:thumb2:

    After looking at your wheels, I would definitely put a coating.

    Another great solution, free!

    Thanks Lance. This gravel road and then the dust from work is killing all my attempts to keep her clean.

    Im going to buy a plastic tub for all my stuff now after seeing your pic. I still have it all in 3 cardboard boxes that they all came in.

    I keep them indoors. Should I still do that or is the garage ok since it gets cold and hot during the year??

    I think you'll be fine with everything in the garage. I do however keep the high dollar stuff inside (Pinnacle Black Label coatings, Blackfire BlackICE, Wolfgang Concours Kit, & CG Black). I definitely would check the products every once in a while and give them a shake. I did hear someone had issues with Lava or Black, fungus growing! We don't have to worry about super hot or freezing cold here in Cali...hows the ride looking?

    Car still looks good. We had a 2 days very windy and dusty here this past week. Got the car dirty, but noticed not a lot of the dust stuck on the car after driving it. Only place you can really tell is on my door where I put my hands on it to close it. Gonna wash it again in a bit and put some more v07 on it.

    Plan on working on my wifes lexus tomorrow. 2 months old. I plan on using the clay bar, coat of 205 with the pc, blacklight, then lava and v07.

    Anykind of synthetic sealent will hold up fine. Something for ease of use kinda pricey but takes 2 minutes after a wash would be hydro2


    For small sample size bottles walmart had them in their hygiene section for the travel size stuff area.


    Here's my collection this is from about 4 months ago and have added to since. :facepalm
