    You got those rims nice and shiny!

    I'm curious about the olive oil on the dash though... Wouldn't the residue go rancid over time and start to smell pretty bad?

    Dont wory. I was sceptic about olive oil and smell but no smell at all. Now I use it all the time.

    Good point! Well see with the test of time. Kerosine cleaned off the brake dust.
