About this book
Of the five generations of Corvettes, the C3 or "shark" models are among the most popular with do-it-yourselfers. Produced from 1968 all the way up to 1982, most C3 Corvettes haven't reached the collector status (and inflated prices) of earlier models. Far from being the black sheep of the Corvette family though, these attractive cars are plentiful (500,000+ were built) and affordable enough that they can be purchased, maintained, and enjoyed by a large spectrum of car lovers. The vast majority are powered by the popular 350ci small block-perhaps the most modified and successful performance engine ever.

    This is what I was looking for to clean my wheels.

    This cleaner works well. It is not magic and simply applying it and rinsing off doesn't really do the trick. Although, I guess if you were crazy and did that daily it would work, but who does that?Personally, I try to wash my car weekly. Some weeks it doesn't happen, but mostly it does. I've found that this spray is easy to apply after having just washed the car and then I use a brush on the wheels before rinsing it all off. The spray goes on easy as a nice foam and all four tires of my mustang seem to take just a little fluid out of the bottle implying a large number of wheel washings per bottle. I have only used it three times so far and the fluid level is nearly at the "looks like it just came from the store" level.As with cleaning anything, keeping a regular routine just makes the cleaning easier and faster. If your wheels are really dirty and you don't clean them frequently then expect to apply this cleaner more than once and to use a little more... 5/5 C. Zimmerman "train nut, shutter bug, compute...

    Works great, smells awful.

    So I've been reading all over that this stuff is supposed to be the best to clean the brake dust off of wheels and, at $15 a bottle, it's fairly cheap compared to some of the other stuff out there. Because my BMW 3 series has such a ridiculous amount of brake dust generated by the stock pads and also because it's winter in Minnesota here, I thought I'd give it a shot. I am not going to compare it to the run of the mill wheel cleaners as you get at Target or Walmart, but to more of the higher end cleaners that pro detailers would use. At this price point, $15 is a pretty good deal. And besides, if you need more there is a 5L bottle for sale too... :)With that said, it really works great. You spray it on and it goes on neon green to show you where all you have sprayed it. Once you spray it on and it gets a chance to do it's work it starts to turn blood red to show you that it is cleaning up all the iron particles on your wheels.

    Great Cleaner that removed Yellow Brake residue safely

(Automotive) I was a little skeptical of this product initially with its price. I had a yellow goo on my aluminum wheels from the brakes that was refusing to come off. I sprayed this on dry wheel, let it sit for 5 minutes till it turned blood red, used a toothbrush for about 2 minutes per wheel. power washed off and the results were awesome. I would buy again however I will by the $100 size because its a way better deal than buying the smaller bottle. I will post a pic too of before and after 0, May 21, 2014

    Incredible

    Rarely is a product worth five stars. This stuff is.I hate washing cars. Much like shaving, it's time you will never get back and adds nothing to your life, at least not mine. So, I wash my cars very infrequently. I like when they're clean, but I hate wasting the time to do it.So, I let my 2011 M3 go for about six months. As you probably know, the brake pads BMW uses leave horribly robust brake dust. It's nearly impossible to remove with anything--chemicals, abrasives, whatever. This is how my wheels looked.So, I didn't have much hope for this chemical. It came recommended on one of the forums. I bought it, figuring how I had nothing to lose except a little money.Removed the wheel from the car, sprayed it on cold. Let it sit for about 3-5 min. The stuff turns crimson red as it reacts with the brake dust. Then you rinse it off. I then took a sponge and soap and washed the wheel. The residue that remained came off easily and... 5/5 T.

    Good shine, weird product.

    This is a weird product. It comes in a double plastic bag. It's a sheet of heavy flannel-like fabric measuring 8-1/4" X 5-3/4". It's saturated (not dripping, just moist) with oil and some kind of unidentified solvent or metal polish. You can smell the tarnish-removing solvent in addition to the coconut oil. Something I don't like is that I "taste" the solvent for a long time after using it. I'm not sure why that happens, but since it's volatile, it's in the air and gets on my tongue.I used it on the plastic on my microwave control panel which had become scratched from being cleaned by the rough side of a sponge. It took the micro-scratches out, but it also dulled the plastic surface. A little shining with high-gloss Pledge remedied that pretty well.I used it on several brushed stainless steel pieces that had gotten stained. The instant I touched the stains, they disappeared and the cloth came up very black like when you polish silver. It leaves a beautiful... 3/5 L.

I have had a dozen of these in my lifetime. They do last a long time, but they work best when they are brand new (despite what the package says). I find that if I use one corner at a time, and just venture into the unused areas as I must, it will last a lot longer. And, even though they dont work as well when they are old and black (yes, it turns black as you use it), it does still work. This actually puts a shine on my jewelry almost as good as I can do with a polishing wheel and jewelers rouge. I have never used it on a really corroded piece of metal, but I will say it works really well when you want your jewelry to be shiny and clean. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 2, 2013

    Hard to apply and remove. Doesn't work well

    There are two bmw's in my driveway that i tested this product on. On both cars, i put this stuff on the passenger side and on the other, Armor All Wheel Protectant. the WAC Wheel Guard is applied and removed like wax. You put it on, let it dry, then remove it with a cloth. It's very time consuming, but it'd be worth it if it worked well. Unfortunately, it doesn't work well compared to the Armor All, which you just spray on.After a few days, there's brake dust everywhere. Rinsing with a hose removes some of the dust, but leaves little round specs of brake dust all over the wheel. Actually looks like rust spots (but they are brake dust mini-clumps.)

    0 1/5 Marty (WA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Chemical Guys WAC303 Wheel Guard Rim and Wheel Sealant - 8 oz. (Automotive) I bought this product hoping that it would help keep brake dust off my chrome wheels or at least make it easier to clean the brake dust off them. I applied it to the left wheels of my car and not on the right after polishing all four wheels. I put a thin layer on the front left wheel like the instructions say and a thick layer on the rear left wheel for comparison. After about a month, both sides looked dirty. It may have been the lighting on the left side, but the left side actually looked a little dirtier than the right side. After putting my car through an automatic car wash I found that all four chrome wheels were very shiny on the outside areas, but all four still had brake dust stuck in the corners of the spokes of the wheels that I still need to clean. Bummer! I want to believe, but the product doesn't seem to do anything. I might just use it for polishing/cleaning only. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 22, 2013

    Smells Strong - like chemicals

    Customer Video Review Length:: 0:18 MinsChemical Guys - yes this wax smells like it was made from a lot of chemicals. The first thing I was greeted with upon opening the jar was the smell of a cheap car wash. This has the strongest nastiest sweet orange / grape / apple odor I've ever smelled in my life. I've used a ton of waxes and none have ever smelled like this.The product is a goo, actually it is exactly the consistency of GoJo, that stuff you use to clean your hands when you are a hard working mechanic. The container is a cold cream jar, in fact they included a plastic inner lid that is the same they use for cold cream.The wax goes on reasonably easy. It is orange, so it is reasonably easy to see when applied to a wheel. If I had wheels with a ton of crevices and small areas to cover - I'd hate this product. Because it is goo like, it is hard to control how much you get on an applicator. On wheels this is a nasty problem - too much wax and you'll leave... 2/5 Daniel G.

    Get's rid of brake well and long lasting shine on the tires

    0 5/5 Birm (St Petersburg, Florida) - See all my reviews This review is from: Blue Magic 785K Supreme Wheel and Tire Care Kit (Automotive) I purchased the Blue Magic Kit from Advanced Auto to use on my powdercoated black 20" wheels I have on my 2012 Camaro. I have tried everything and the sink but the brake dust from the Brembo's is insane! Well, this seemed to solve the problem for the most part. Obviously you need to maintain them but this does break it up well, and the tire shine. Mine is roughly 3weeks in now (been raining here in Florida) and there is still a decent shine on my tires. Not that dirty reddish brown look.

But I needed some wheel cleaner and a small brush so I thought I would give this kit a try.After reading the directions It goes on like most other wheel cleaner. 1. spray the wheel with water to knock off any large particles. 2. spray the wheel and tire with the cleaner wait 30 seconds 3. start scrubbing the wheel with the supplied brush ( I sprayed mine down with water before using it)4. when through scrubbing the wheel start on the tire paying extra attention to any white lettering. 5. spray down the wheel and tire (also the brush).I found it did a good job of breaking down the brake dust and road grime. After a little bit of brushing the spray down reviled a clean wheel and tire, even the white lettering was clean.I cannot comment on the metal polish and spray tire dressing with the kit. But if the meal polish is the same as the full size version there... 4/5 Jason Robinson "jr" (Mt.
