Re: corroded wheels
I used Flitz with a fair anount of success (much, much rubbing!) on
my old 760T, it helped a bit but the clear coat was gone, so it was
only a temporary fix.
Had pretty good success with Eagle One on my 89 780 wheels, the clear
coat must have been in good shape on this one, since they really came
out nice, and have lasted so far for about 6 months in the HOT Florida
sun, tho they could now probably use another treatment.
Good luck, I know this is a frustrating problem.
