That's a great story and pictures Husker!

Simple Green will dull aluminum and anodized metals if left on too long, and won't do too much if you don't leave it on long or dilute it a lot with water. That's been my experience with cleaning bicycle components. Always be sure to rinse with a lot of water if you do use it. I have had some Hondas and an Audi that had wheels where the brake dust literally became part of the wheel finish and nothing would take it off. For whatever reason, I've been very lucky with 2 sets of wheels on my Boxster, Lt. Alloy Carrera and Boxster S II wheels - all the brake dust comes off with regular car wash soap and water. Maybe I clean this car more often?
