When you give me the keys to your 1M!

We did the Nanolex on the Lamborghini earlier this year.

Nanolex on the VO looks amazing. I think different products work better on different colours?

Nanolex & Wolf's Body Wrap and Wolf's Hard Body have all looked amazing on VO. It really is a fantastic colour, despite what others think. The metallic flake and the lines on the car do wonders for the overall paintwork. Very very liquid looking especially with those big arches and curves too.

Agree there Raj. You did a magnificent job on my car some 12 months ago, and it still looks just as good as the day you detailed.

Interested in this product, Is this nanolex available in brisbane anywhere? And would it suit Sedona red ?

Can buy from www.carcareproducts.com.au

I used it on my 135i which was Sedona too. Looked really wet.

There are many Nanolex (and other) products available.

Shoot me a PM of what you are after for your car and you can order anything through TWD or Car Care Products

I have the nanolex sealant on my new rims and when it comes time to wash the car most of the brake dust sheets off after hosing. I haven't applied it to my paint yet the zymol titanium wax does a great job as is.

They also state that it shall last between 1-3 years on wheel rims.

I applied 2 coats of Hard Body to my wheels. Silver, machined face, clear coated. I do notice that a lot of brake dust does end up washing off with just a spray of the hose but nowhere even remotely enough that it could be confused with being 'clean'.

I don't know if that's normal or if Hard Body just doesn't work with brake dust. I'll try and take a photo of it next time I wash the car.

I also have G Techniq C5 wheel armor on my other car and it's about similar. There's no way it can be just hosed off without getting there and giving it a good proper clean with a microfibre mit. I even wheel waxed over the top of the C5 to see if I could get a better result. Those wheels are a satin black so I figured it was something to do and a clear coated wheel would be better but it's seems pretty much the same.

Hence why we use the Nanolex ULTRA on wheels.
Hard Body is a paint sealant and not really suited for wheels. We have used this on wheels before. It gives a great finish and makes the wheels easier to clean, but not as good as Nanolex Ultra.
And yes, once sealants have been applied (depending on driving/usage) you will still need to get in there with your pH neutral car wash and microfibre mitt.
On a side note, did you buy Kenny's old car? What wheels are on there now? I saw them at the dyno day...they look fantastic!

Paint your wheels gunmetal like mine... Then they remain "clean" longer..

Yes that is true you do need to still wash them, but even hosing them you can see the brake dust lift off (without the nanolex in the past it wouldnt lift the grime at all really)

Depending on vehicle/brakes/sealant.....you can really notice a night and day difference (both cleaning and the wheel finish).

Ah, sounds like it's working correctly then. I was worried I wasted my time/money because everyone talks about how they just spray them with water haha.

I did haha. Thanks! I didn't get a chance to meet you that day . Didn't realise that you were there.

They're Forgestar F14s that I managed to pick up new from another forum member. The colour is called Brushed Titanium which is painted silver, has the face machined and then is clear coated. I love the look of black rims but this finish is quite unique and when clean looks pretty stunning so I think I'll keep it like this for a while haha. They're a bitch to keep clean though. Can't wait until I do my brakes job and replace them with cool carbons. Hopefully that'll help. That and buying some wheel woolies or something like Joe.
