Cheaper alternative than liquid glass

Post by Sleestak » Wed Feb 05, 2020 11:45 am

I need a drop and a large can is $38. Blah

Any other ideas for wheel hubs after novus 2 polish?

Using oil not graphite.

Mequires quick wax, lucas slick mist, rejex, turtle wax black ice. You're looking for a synthetic product to act as a sealant.

Make sure the synthetic wax is both hydrophobic (repels water) and oleophobic (repels oil), as I have seen they almost always indicate that they are hydrophobic, but only a few state that they are also oleophobic.

Do you know of a specific brand that is oleophobic? This way I just look for this.
