  3. Woodgrain Kit or Brush Aluminum?

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    Hey, I wanted to change the dash pieces. I dont like the whole woodgrain kit, I'd rather have the silver brush aluminum that the ' V 's come with. I like the look of those, really clean and simple. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Cadillac Detailing and Bodywork - Interior and Ext
    Vogue Tyre Cleaner!!!! It really is as easy as they claim: spray on, scrub with a soft nylon brush for a few seconds (don't let the product dry anywhere) then rinse it all off. That's it! No going over it a couple of times, no back-breaking doubled-over action with a variety of brushes, etc...

Since my wheels had that greyish, probably protective paint over the chrome on all but the outside facing surfaces, I decided to take it off. There was a thread on here a while back...
