I tried it years ago on my DI and my DII, after wheeling and then one wash it was gone. That's why I use the Meguiar's tire gel now, is to pop it on and seems to last better.

I tried to see things from your point of view, but I couldn't get my head that far up my ass.

I think Cvc's goal is to make me vomit daily with his disgusting avatars.

I've heard this stuff works good. I'll try it out and do a follow up later on.

I know its an old thread. But my wheel flares are dark gray and painted from the factory. Tops are somewhat chipped and black is showing through. Any sugestions? The heat gun sounds great, but in my case I think it will just ruin the remaining paint

03 Disco S, 71k. Done- rear dif, front driveshaft, 2" OME lift and shocks, Kumho MT KL71, every stinking gasket on the engine and oil pump, wires, plugs, t-stat. Locking TC.

Either sand and paint them with a good plastic paint or just remove them. I removed mine a couple years ago... problem solved

+1 on Krylon Fusion paint. Specially made for plastic and is easy to clean and lasts longer then bedliner paints & forever black.
For tires, Mothers Reflections Tire care & treatment. (Can be tough to find locally, Amazon has about best price going on it)

Red Lion Insta-Clean. Spray on and walk away. Hit it a second time if needed.
If not, spray some Red Lion Insta-Shine after and thank me later.

Red Lion is made by Chromate and I am not sure how readily available it is being that it is "industrial".
CHROMATE CHEMICALS

Kano Labs "Kroil" and the likes was only to be sold to industries, but it seems if you look hard enough, you can find people selling it. Best rust buster EVER.
