Welcome back to the Proje’ blog! Last week, we looked at restoring and protecting your trim. This week, we’re keeping things rhyming but moving down below – from trim to rims.
Now, it’s easy to forget about your rims – especially those inner parts that you can’t see. In fact, they’re also pretty hard to reach without the right kit and even if you do, you need something sturdy enough to actually be doing a job. It’s one of those things that’s actually quite simple to get right, but you need a specialist accessory to help you get it right.
At Proje’, we’re proud of our brush range. It covers everything from tiny crevices on your dash to your tires themselves. But one of our most specialist accessories is our Inner Rim Barrel Brush. It’s only $19.99 but it does a job that no other bit of detailing kit can do, really getting down and dirty in the part of your car that’s hardest to reach.
Look and Feel
The Inner Rim Barrel Brush is a big bit of kit, far larger than any of our other brushes. Of course, it needs to be to get right in there! Deep down in your barrels, oil, dirt, and brake dust builds up silently, waiting to cause problems with rust and degradation, so you need to force it out. So, you’ll find the brush is long-handled, coarse, and thick. But that said, the fibers are still synthetic so you don’t need to worry about any scratching or damage. Get in there and build up a sweat!
How to Use the Inner Rim Barrel Brush
This isn’t even a step-by-step job – you only need to do one thing! Simply slide the barrel brush between the spokes of your rim to clean the barrels of any rim; painted, chrome, aluminum, etc. Remember, the bristles are flexible and soft enough that you can push them right in there without any danger of scratching, but the brush is sturdy enough that you’ll dislodge all the nasty stuff. And just so you can really put the effort in, we’ve also added a plug handle to protect your hand and knuckles when you’re digging deep. Just grip the brush near the protective guard and you’ll be safe from grazes as you work the brush in and out of the barrel.
Maximize your Work
If you’ve taken the time to do all this, you might as well spend an extra few minutes getting the wheels to match your newly cleaned barrels. So, why not reach for Redline Wheel Cleaner – the most effective, intuitive wheel cleaner out there. You’ll find it super easy to use (as with all our products!) and with just a bit of extra effort, you’ll have covered double the work!
A Bit About Redline
Redline wheel cleaner is a powerful all-purpose cleaner that gets right in to your wheel wells to break down all the toughest build-ups of dirt, brake dust and grease or contamination caused by the breakdown of surrounding metals at high temperatures.
To use this cleaner, completely saturate the area you want to clean, then a minute or so for the liquid to settle. Then, you’ll start to see the liquid bubbling slightly as the active chemical in our cleaner neutralizing any acidic build-ups, so that they strip away without any problems. As the cleaner really starts to take effect, it will start to turn red and when the whole ares has changed color, you can rinse everything away to find a shiny wheel underneath!
Finally, grab that wheel and trim towel and give everything a good dry so that you don’t leave any staining on your wheels.
Then sit back, relax, and enjoy the fantastic results of your hard work!
