Thought id have a wee post in the new section :P getting a set of wheels refurbished currently and was wondering if anyone has any top tips on protecting them to keep them in good nick. Theyre going to be painted and lacquered rather than powder coated so was thinking just a coat of quality wax then a wheel sealant. Any better ideas?

That looks interesting stuff, id like to see how good it is on rubber and plastic too, some of the trims on the mondeo are looking pretty washed out these days and the osr window seals looking a bit blotchy...
