Mantri Mall.
Not sure about the size, but it's similar to the ones posted previously. Scotchbrite. perhaps 12x12cm?
It's the blue one.

Hi GTO thanks for pointing the error . I did a copy paste and did miss out on the line offering thbp offer. The purpose of post was to post the prices of products on forum; I have done it earlier also for other products. Please restore the prices without the offending offers part mentioned in the post ( if its within forum guidelines ) you can also check on and delete one of my previous post mentioning prices of mothers products ( post no 4548 in this thread ) . Thanks.

Default We may finally have all DIY products of Meguiars retailed in India

Posted the following query on

"Folks I am interested in buying your products like the Ultimate Quick Detailer and Ultimate Quick Wax .. Where can I buy them ??"

Meguair India FB Page

Someone from Meguairs did revert back stating that we may have complete access to all DIY products in a few months time..

Finally we see the light at the end of tunnel I guess

Cheers

Sateesh

Default Suggestion Required

Need suggestion clearing the Chain lube which gets sprayed on to the rims of my bike.
I know diesel is an option but i want to avoid that. Any good product which i can use on it to clean it.

RK Sans - Im guessing you are referring to the alloy rims of your CBR ?

A good alloy cleaner should safely take care of removing all the sling off from the chain lube ! (Honeywell/Sonax)

Yea! Any wheel cleaners will work!

Make sure its not an acid based cleaner!

Eagle one all wheel cleaner is also great for rims and wheels + its non acid based!

Is diesel ok for washing the windscreen?

Also, I had my swift's rims painted black but within no time the paint started chipping off. Having lost a wheel-cap yesterday I thought I'd buy a new set of wheel-caps but the paint chipping off needs to be taken care of too. So how do I get the rims painted this time? Last time the paint guy just spray the black paint all over the rim, just paint and nothing else. What should I get done differently this time considering that the black paint is still on the rims.

I don't think so... doesn't it damage the rubber seals?

Anyway, why? soap or glass cleaner and water should be fine for the windscreen. I occasionally use Auto Glym glass cleaner, which has a fine powder abrasive that won't damage glass, but removes stubborn grease. It's good on the interior, especially if you smoke in the car.

You are right, this is for my CBR. The chain lube gets splashed royally on to the rims and its difficult to remove just by shampoo.

Thanks sohail. Do we get Eagle one in India or do we need to order thru amazon/autogeek, etc.
