Used this for the 1st time today, and it works an absolute treat!

After doing the wheels and pw rinsing, I sprayed about 3-4 pulls on each disk trying to ensure even coverage

After washing the rest of the car, rinsing and drying off, I was left with this which still remains rust free

This product is bang on!

Order placed. Hopefully will save driving up the road and back after every wash

Yeah I thought that myself, I'll see how bad the cloud of rust is when I move the car

I'm hoping that because the backside doesn't get pelted with water so much it doesn't get as immediately rusty, but we'll see

Looks like the car still needs taking for a spin after a wash. Applied it 3 times, 5% mix???

Mine look like this too after using Atom-Mac. They are much better than without it but not perfect.

How is this product used then please chaps? 5% to how much water in a spray bottle and I'm guessing you just spray on. Will be a product I'd need as my car is stored outside

5% dilution ratio, aka 1:20

Just scale that to however much you want to make up

Spray onto exposed metal, leave, profit

Nice one philly thanks mate. Is it worth taking the wheels off and cleaning the brakes with a wire brush then spray it on once they are clean? My rear brakes are a bloody nightmare as 95% off my breaking comes from the front so my rear disks rust badly. Probably need new calipers/Pistons to be fair
