I've had my 3.78 litre container of Barebones for years. I've tried various others, but always go back to it. Smells fantastic too and lasts as well as anything else I've tried.

CG Bare Bones. Great finish, and it lasts too. Even makes a cleaning a breeze, nothing sticks to wheel arches. I just make sure I apply it after I wash and dry my wheel acrhes and then after spraying it I just leave them like that to dry naturaly. It lasts longer that way for me, and it repels dirt great. I used to use CarPro PERL diluted 1:5 but arches never get black as they do with bare bones and it seemed that perl just attracted more dirt.

Yes, very slick, stains the driveway, so don't let it drip

Very nice look though; little goes a long way

After rinsing my wheel woolies I scrunch dry, spray some dressing on, and then quickly do the arches; job done

Autoglanz uber is very very similar

I've seen products available like CG Bare Bones and Adam's Undercarriage Spray but wonder if these are actually any better than something like Aerospace 303 which is priced about the same and has more uses ...



Any opinions welcome



Thanks



Simon


Adams is very glossy; aerospace will dry To satin with it dropping to Matt after a day

Depends on the look you want?

Water based won't last a day in this weather though...

Personally, try the 'spray on a brush' technique for quick maintenance
