Atom mac results

Just used atom-mac for the first time on my brakes. I often can't move my car without causing a bit of bother as I'm usually boxed in on the drive. As a result I normally wash the car using ONR and just do the wheels with the hose and bucket. I get very rusty discs after!

Diluted as per instructions to 5% and lightly sprayed onto discs after rinsing but before drying wheels with the sidekick.

A few hours later here are the results...





Perfect.

Highly recommended, especially when you consider that the amount of actual product used per application is absolutely tiny. (And yes, I did remove that tar spec to the left of the first image after )

Can you let me know how this was used? 5% solution sprayed onto disc immediately after washing? Then left to dry.

Was the disc clean and shiny before application? It's not a rust remover, will only prevent corrosion, so if the disc has already flashed it won't reverse it.

Yep, the disc was clean, I’d only been out in the car 20mins before it was washed. I was expecting something better.

Did you apply at the beginning of wash routine or as a very last stage?
