    Removing caked on brake residue

    Got a set from Sierra Madre. Good quality. https://sierramadrecollection.com/911-930-74-89-/Wheels-Hubcaps/Center-Cap-Ring-Clip-Black-p18565.html Haven't decided on tyres yet. Has Toyo Proxes so might stay with them. Very aggressive tread pattern but only need a good all round road tyre as won't be doing any track work with this car. Thanks JB. The brake residue was up to 4mm thick in places so a slow process. The wax was original factory overspray and a real pain. The polished rims are still a bit cloudy so need more work. Ceramic coating a good idea.

    Removing caked on brake residue

    Finally got all wheels finished. Crud all gone. Brake residue/dirt/wax. Used degreaser/turps/wax remover/prepsol/swear words. Hand cut shiny bits with Autosol. Used a wheel buffer to cut inside and out with a good quality cut paste. Finished off with Mothers carnuba wax. They're not brand new but I'm happy with the result. New centre caps to be fitted. New tyres next as these are 10 years old.

    The original seats are OK for me on short drives. But then I'm a lightweightish skinny arse. Be careful with seat height as the steering wheel is usually quite low on converted cars.
