Our metal polishing system has been reformulated, and #2 is finally ready to go! VOC laws forced us to discontinue #2 a while back, but thanks to a lot of testing and tweaking with a new VOC compliant solvent we're able to bring it back.

Adam and I did our final run thru with the product this week while I was in Colorado. What better test vehicle than his '73 Bronco... check out the pics and videos for a great example of what this stuff can do!! Metal Polish 2 goes on sale Monday.

reusing applicator pads and clear coat

I have a set HRE 549R street wheels and Fiske profil 10 track wheels for my C5. Both are three piece wheels. Both have metal rims with no clear coat but the center/basket section have clear coating. two questions:
1. is it safe to use the metal polish on the entire wheel?
2. can you reuse the applicator pads?
i have washed the micro-fiber pads after use but i have only used them on my CTS (daily driver) after that.

1) Safe? Yes. Advisable? No.... there won't be any improvement or benefit to applying the polish to areas that are not raw/uncoated metal so you'd be wasting product and creating more work for yourself in any area that isn't polishable metal.

2) Absolutely. Metal polishing can be kind of messy due to the black residue transfer so its generally best to clean them first by hand using something like our All Purpose Cleaner, scrub with your fingers, then rinse and repeat. Beyond that you can toss them in the washer, but its likely there will still be that black residue still in there so you may want to wash them separate to keep from contaminating other stuff in the wash.

moving from the m brand to Adams

i had been using the M brand metal polish but was a bit concerned with the clear coat on the basket. i wasn't purposely using it on the clear coat areas but there is a gap between the basket and the rim that gets dirty and needs attention on the rim. will order this week along with some interior products.
