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.

    Works Great. Better than Car Wash Soap

    0 5/5 Aaryanna (So Cal) - See all my reviews This review is from: Meguiar's G14324 Hot Rims Aluminum Wheel Cleaner - 24 oz. (Automotive) I liked this Meguiar's Aluminum Wheel Wash. I thought it worked great. For light amounts of dirt and brake dust, I just sprayed it on and hosed it off. No wiping or buffing required.For really heavy amounts of caked on brake dust and very hard water spots, I'll admit that I had to use a brush. I sprayed a small section, brushed off my wheels, and the grime just melted away. For this level of dirt, my car wash soap alone (even with a brush) wouldn't do the trick. But this Meguiar's Aluminum Wheel Wash certainly did. It even worked fine in hard to reach places, like corners and around the valve stem. Thank heavens.For both levels of grime, both heavy and light, I think this product works well. In either case, there's no wiping or polishing required afterwards. Just be sure to rinse the soap off thoroughly with water. I was very happy. My aluminum wheels looked like they were new. This is a product I highly recommend.

    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

    0 5/5 Mark Sloobda (MARYSVILLE, OH, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sonax (230200-755) Wheel Cleaner Full Effect - 16.9 fl. oz. (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.

    When the PowerBall won't cut it.

    Unfortunately, or perhaps, foolishly, I own three vehicles with polished aluminum wheels. They are all custom wheels with no lacquer finish to protect them. One is a 4X4 (Isuzu Trooper) that sees duty in all kinds of weather. One is a "classic car" that is generally protected and the last is a PU which is always subject to weather.The Trooper was driven to Kansas City this last winter when they were having some of the worst snow and ice in MO for many years. That meant road salt and other ice melting chemicals were in use while the Trooper racked up more than a thousand miles of driving. The (forged Centerline) wheels were inundated and only washed once before spring. Needless to say, they suffered considerable corrosion before I had a chance to clean and polish them.I had been using the PowerBall to polish the Centerlines, and in the East Tennessee climate, they would become only moderately corroded through the winter and the PowerBall (along with a great deal... 5/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Buffing Aluminum

    0 5/5 Dale - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Anytime Tools POLISH BUFFING KIT for Mag Wheels, MANIFOLD, ALUMINUM, Stainless Steel, CHROME (Tools & Home Improvement) I used this kit to polish 4 American Racing rims that were polished but had oxidation marks from my car sitting outside 1 Ohio winter. I first tried a Mothers PowerCone but the foam prevented concentrating the buffing pressure. This buffing kit did the trick. The various shapes and diameters made it possible to reach 99% of the nooks but after the 2nd wheel they started to flatten out preventing getting every nook. I suggest buying 2 kits if you're doing 4 wheels. I bought a second buffing kit from the local Harbor Freight to finish the last 2 wheels. If your rims are not heavily oxidized then the Mothers PowerCone will get the job done. Also, because the metal polish is grease based it's a messy job. Use old clothes and wear rubber gloves or you might end up spending more time cleaning up than polishing. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 26, 2010

    Mothers Vs. Simichrome

    My father bought me a tube of Simichrome some years back. The stuff produces a luster in metal so well that I didn't want to change products. But when I looked into getting an 8oz tub of Simichrome (smaller than the 10oz tub of Mothers listed here), I realized that it's more than three times the price. Now I'm trying Mothers after having used Simichrome for years. I know how Simichrome smells, how it acts on metals, how much to use, and how far how much you use can go on the type of metal it is used. Mothers polish is an affective product; it does what they say it does. It puts a very nice luster on metal. However, compared to Simichrome, it doesn't do as well on the relatively harder metals such as the brass of a bullet casing; the bullet casing was a test. Simichrome seems to have finer grits and a more concentrated concoction of chemicals. As a result, it takes less work and less polish to achieve a superior luster.In essence: Simichrome provides a better (more... 4/5 M. Duran "Matthew R.

However, be careful if you're polishing a part that's only coated with a thin layer of metal because the metal will be gone. As the case with my chrome headlight housing.

    Almost magic - and that's the problem

    I bought this product last summer to restore some vintage kitchen canisters made of brushed aluminum. It's almost magic, but in a way that's a problem. I literally spent a day polishing one canister, because I just couldn't ever get to the point where my rags and paper towels weren't continuing to pick up dark oxidized material from the surface. This stuff is so effective, that at some point, you just have to realize that there will always be a microscopically thin layer of oxidation and call it good. The challenge is to leave an even surface without darker or lighter spots. If you start saying "I'm just going to work on that little spot some more", then that little spot will be shiny enough to blind a sniper at two miles, but then it's shinier than everything else, so you you need to work on the other parts for awhile and...well, you see what I mean.I agree that it stinks to high heaven, but I use it in my kitchen anyway.

I posted pictures as well. It takes a bunch of elbow grease, my fingers were sore from how much work it took to get the results I got, but the way the chrome wheels turned out was well worth it. I would recommend this product, but this isn't just a wipe on, let dry and wipe off if your wheels have a lot of buildup. I'm sure that is how it works once you have clean wheels, but initially to get them shining from rust looking, it takes serious polishing. 0, June 25, 2013
