    If you have a problem with IPA, use carpro Eraser......

    You are overthinking it......
    No problems or issues with IPA. Was actually just thinking of a solution ratio.

    Huh, that`s interesting! Kinda surprises me that Honda is still using paint. Even my Mazda minivan had powdercoat.

    Well boys, I might have caused more damages to the polished lips then good (read definitely did) lol.

    I wanted to remove the final finishing scratches that were on the polished lips using just a MF towel and some Autosol.

    Needless to say it looks foggy then it did before and now I need a way to bring the gloss back. I feel so dumb lol

    About to coat the inside barrels with the sonax coating.

    I doubt the hardware will be covered. Thereís no way Iíll ever get the coating off!

    I heard over on AG that the Sonax Rim Coat doesn’t last very long. Let us know your results.

    Is the lip clearcoated aswell or polished aluminum?

    If clearcoated treat it as paint. Mothers has some great polishing balls or cones and a drilling machine. If they are polished aluminum Mothers Billet metall polish or Mothers Mags & Alu would be a good choice.

    Are you sure it`s micro marring or could it be that you didn`t get all of the Autosol off? Test with little of a waterless wash or a QD to clean it and see if it`s takes off the dried Autosol.

    Iím almost certain itís just polished aluminum.

    No clear coat.

    The marring was induced by myself after using autosol via hand and a MF towel.

    Are both the mothers products you mentioned capable of working via hand or do I need the powerball for the drill ?

    Oh yeah..forgot about that (it`s been a while since I had wheels like that, and the maintenance is a big reason why).

    Confirmed with the makers. The lip is polished aluminum. No clear.

    The centres are powder coated clear!

    The lips are easy-peasy to clean. The centres would be a night are if they were polished!

    Now I need to fix my mistake on the polished lip

    But won`t the portion of the lip where the fasteners are be a PIA?
