Cleaning the wheel wells is part of my routine when I detail my vette in the spring and fall. I use a general degreaser, lots of scrubbing followed by a good coating of CRC heavy duty silicone. In the past, they would look good for about a month and then slowly fade back to looking kinda dingy. This last spring I used GoJo hand cleaner instead of degreaser and they still look like I did them yesterday (smelled good for a couple of days too lol). I got the idea while washing my hands with the stuff and thought since it's such a good cleaner but doesn't dry stuff out it might work well on plastic. Just call me crazy, my wife does

Just the kind of tips I would hope to see here at this forum.
Being a new guy with a corvette, I am looking a lot at detailing. Setting myself up for a marathon clean-up in the spring.

this should be a great place for you... everyone is very helpful. There's been numerous detailing discussions over the years and you can either do some searching on the site or just start a new thread when you're ready to clean and buff - starting a new topic might be ideal for this since we all devise our own ways
