Axle Polish Compound
Free Grab Bag

This "Grab Bag" conveniently gathers together all the odds and ends you will need to make sure the items in the Complete Package, Basic Package, or Speed Package are applied properly. It is provided free with these packages since proper application is just as important as the polishing and lube compounds themselves. The mini-dowels are only used in car construction and are not included in the Speed Package which is just for car lubrication.
