Default Center Lock Wheel Nut Fade

I could not find the old thread on this where someone mentions olive oil. Anyway. Attached are before and after picture following a week of driving and outside time - even some rain - after rubbing in a very small amount of olive oil. I asked a Porsche tech if olive oil would be ok and he said it's fine. Would not cause any issues even if it made the surface slick. Any remains could also be washed off. Looks good to me.

The discoloration had been nagging at me so decided to give it a try .

It's still very surprising to me. It really absorbed it. I rubbed in very little then wiped it down with a clean rag. Expected it would be faded a day later. Still holding strong!

Kind of like the petroleum jelly on the Fuchs days of old.

A bit of olive oil and water and it'll come right off.
