Wheel swap

Well this morning had a bit of time on my hands so I thought I’ll swap tyres/wheels back for fronts & vice versa as the fronts are wearing quicker than the rears so while it was up in the air I thought I’d clean the callipers up & put some Poorboys wheel sealant on the front brembos 3x coats & copper slip the brake pipes.

Just had a read up on that Lindab thanks,now it’s where to find best place to buy a gallon.Ideal if you buy a new car & do the underside every 12 month. Andy.

Andy, 4 litre for £79.90 with free delivery on Ebay. They are open to offers so you will get it a bit cheaper Whistle

Good idea re. the Poorboys on the caliper Andy. I think I'll have to do that myself.

I appreciate it's not in the same league as gtechniq, but how do you find it on wheels? Kev

Ive got C5 on my wheels but I put 3 coats of poorboys on the calipers as I cannot leave to cure over night & the temp in my workshop is probably too cold that's the reason I chose PB.The C5 on the wheels is holding up well & still a breeze to clean,but saying that I never let them get too bad before I clean them & its never left more than 2 weeks between cleaning the car & wheels. Andy.

Thanks Andy. I also have the C5 on mine but I may give the Poorboys a go next time to compare. Kev

The difference is C5 will last about 2-3 years were as PB needs doing about every 6 month but it’s easier to remove one wheel at a time apply 3 coats then re-fit in any weather. Andy.
