Discovered 1Z Glanz from an old writeup of yours. At $20 it has to be one of the biggest detailing bargains out there. I swear by the stuff now.

Great work! What do you guys use for the exhaust tips? And for the rim cleaner do you just spray it or do you also have to scrub it depending on how dirty the rims is. Thanks

Adams metal polish. Agitation of the rims with a brush seems to be preferred some times when the rims have real brake dust caked on
