Hey guys, for quite some time now I've heard about zoops seal. Well.. when I bought the wheels last summer I also spent the $80 and thought I'd give it a try. I bought the:
ZoopSeal Jr. Protective Sealer Kit (Part #95502)
I wish that the pics I took could show the results. But all I have is my 2mb camera phone. I took pics.. but you just can't see the details. So sorry.. no pics.
I just wanted to give some real life feedback on the product. After all this is very expensive stuff.
Well, I have a set of MT classic 2 that are bare polished aluminum. I let them go for a few months and then as soon as they started putting down salt it only took a few days for the alumium to start and corrode with those white-ish specs. So over the Thanksgiving weekend I removed the wheels and using a mothers powerball, mothers "billet" polish, a few towels, and just soapy water I got the wheels up to a smoother and more glossy shine than when I first got them from summit. They looked absolutely SHARP!
So onto the zoops. I followed the instructions to the letter. I washed them with the special cleaner at a 15:1 ratio. This definately is working. Burns your skin too btw.. (yes I got a little on me
The aluminum didn't look any different. But grey was coming off on the rags.
I then used the zoop sealer. This had about the same look as clear powder coating. It looks good as is.
But then I used the zoops final seal. WOW! that was the ticket. Tht brought the shine back to the pre-sealed look. They look exactly like I just got done polishing.. but it has a almost just waxed feel to them.
Ok so now it's been nearly two weeks of driving in salt. (salted roads & snow nearly every day since)
The wheels are not only cleaner than normal. But with a quick wipe they look like I just got finished polishing.
Here is a pic of when they were new. Today they look even a little better because of all the time I spent. Oh and I switched to aluminum centers that are zooped too. This salted environment is just killer on them.
