3. rub away film gently
4. rinse again using sheet method and then dry off anything left over/ use leaf blower

also can you use products like kaboom to do any minor cleaning on the exterior of the car?

i know its a household product for tubs and stuff.. but would there be anything inside it that i shouldn't use on the 313 m wheels?

Thanks again Otruba
IPA shouldn't be used in that fashion on a car. Avoid all household products like the plague for detailing.
