    Cleaning Fuchs

    Anodising is both tough and easily damaged (?!) Any corrosive based cleaner will etch into it in seconds. Products like WonderWheels or the sodium hydroxide based wheel cleaners used by your local hand car wash. Non corrosive polish type cleaning products won't harm it at all.

    Best rust treatment for surface rust inside sills?

    Wow, is that how much it is now? Sure I paid £120 for a box of a dozen mixed aerosols from them - albeit some time ago! It’s good stuff. Out of curiosity I put the chassis wax in the wheelarches of a work van in 2009. Most of it was still there last year. Waxoyl would’ve been long gone.

    I did start to read it once, logging out somewhere around the point where he stated that one of the wax regimes didn’t seem to have any benefit “after a seventh coat”. Like any sane character he then applied a further forty four coats.
