Extra gloss protection

Hey folks. I was wondering if this could be used over a polish on alloy wheels as a wheel sealant? I found a bottle I was given last year in a set and before I spend out on a dedicated wheel sealant I thought I would ask the question.

Hi Graeme it certainly can. Make sure you shake it really well and apply thinly. I currently have it on my MR2s wheels.

EGP is great stuff. A wee tip for you, put a spray head onto the bottle, and mist the EGP onto a sponge applicator. Far easier to apply.

Cheers guys that's great to hear. Getting the alloys ready to go back on the car after the winter so will get use out of the bottle.

It works a dream on wheels. And remember a thin layer, apply it like it costs £100 a bottle.

A small sample spray bottle is perfect for EGP. Don't fill up the bottle as the bottle will not last very long so it is a one use only. Fully agree with the comments about thin application and pretend it is a £100 a bottle
