I have always dreamed of owning a Corvette, but life as always stood in the way (after all, living Colorado required also owning another car for the winter). But after a year of going thru a divorce, the stars aligned and I traded in my 04 CTS-V (I did love that car too) on a very clean 06 Monterey Red Corvette this week. So at 34 yrs old I FINALLY got my dream car, and absolutely loving it.
I will probably have all sorts a questions. But first is what do you all use to clean and polish your chrome wheels. There are all sorts of products out there and I don't want to end up with something that damages them.
Congrats and welcome. To keep my chromies looking shinny and brand new looking I use Nevr-Dull made by Eagle One. Comes in a silver can and found at most auto parts stores. Then follow it up with several coats of RejeX.
Your wheels will look great.
I used a good car soap and water and with a wash mitt and one of those soft brushes made to fit in tight places. You can follow with a wheel polish or wax esp. if you live in an area that uses salt in the winter or has salt air like where I live now. Helps prevent rust in any places that might have a small flaw in the chrome.
Welcome to the forum! I, too, live in Colorado and just purchased my first Corvette - 07 Monterrey Red Z51 3LT. What an awesome ride. I had a 2010 Shelby Cobra GT500. That car was faster in the straights but couldn't corner near as well as my Vette. I will take the my Corvette any day over the Shelby. By the way, I live in Canon City.
I had an 06 Monterey Red and it is a beautiful color. If you haven't already, you'll see a big difference in the color depending on the light - sunlight, shade, indoor lighting, etc..
I just use soap and water to keep my chrome wheels shiny. If you haven't already, check out the Car Care Discussion Forum on here at: http://forums.corvetteforum.com/car-care-discussion-10/
You can even post or PM forum vendors like Autogeek for advice on cleaning. They respond back very quickly, even on weekends.
Enjoy the ride!!
