- Applied to external face only
- Monitoring durability.

Worth while depends how much, ease of application and last how long..... smile_tongue.gif

It's about RM150 for a 20ml bottle. Used around 0.5ml to coat the exterior face only. I would guess around 1ml would be enough to coat the whole wheel inside and out. That would roughly come to around RM7.50 per wheel, product only.

Application was STUPIDLY easy...I would say it's a little like applying the EnviroShield...wipe on then lightly buff off (well...I always buff off ES even though the label says you don't need to).

Durability....well...lets see how long it can last and how well it can protect. It's now just into week no 4...
