I took this advice from Blueberry and it works well. The arches clean up really easily now after application of the I1

Also, if the car is older its worth checking behind the arch liners. You may be surprised as to whats lurking with intent! On my five year old Golf I found half a bucket of mud and gravel trapped behind all four arches. Behind the rear carpet liners the gravel was trapped between the liner and arch, and so had eroded part of the paint, causing light surface rust - detected just in time. This on a vehicle with only 35K on the clock too

I have them on the Audi, hate them. After jet washing them I use the same wash and spoke brush as for the wheels to give them a scrub.

I jet wash rinse, spray APC, scrub with a fender brush and finally PW rinse. always come up a treat and they stay clean until the first rainfall.
