    Getting my car ready for Cruisin the Coast.

    I would like to cleanup my rear wheel wells without having to repaint over the existing textured coating.

    Anybody have a cleaning trick that eliminates and keeps the dusty look at bay from the rear wheel wells?

    May just use some tire shine type of spray. Get a little whisk broom clean any loose dirt then a light shot. Let it drip and dab a shop towel in areas the look too wet.

    What i did on my 68 Vette with factory undercoating was cleaned them really good than brushed on chassis saver satin black ( same thing as por 15) makes them look really good and way easier to clean

    The best way to detail the rear wheel wells is to spin the tires vigorously until they smoke. That will detail the wheel wells with a nice coating of rubber.
