Or maybe they're getting better at special requests. Good to know. Thanks. Now it bugs me that they offer that option, but nowhere in their site do they mention it.

Just wondering if you happened across anything that would dissolve the glue and foam resin without destroying the paint.....or taking 2 weeks to do so.
Stripe eraser aka toffee wheel in England.
Eastwood should have it in stock, or an automotive paint supply place.

I've been using "magic erasers" to get scuffs off the hard plastic in my cars lately. Yesterday I did all the door cards in my 940 with a magic eraser, as they were getting some grimy build up on them; did a good job getting that worn in dirt out. I have used diluted Westley's Bleach White to clean stuff like that in the past, but that stuff is so harsh. I just kept the magic eraser wet and wiped it down with a clean cloth as I rubbed. Hit it with some leather/vinyl treatment after to keep it protected. I need to hit center council and especially the arm rest with it tonight.

Wow, I just discovered this thread. I would have thought this would go under the Maintenance section, but great job!
BTW, how about some advice on the cleaning tools you use? Toothbrush, paintbrush, makeup brush?

Thanks!

I recently purchased the recommended paints to go about cleaning up my engine bay in a similar fashion. Words cannot describe how great stove bright is. I will post some pictures soon.

I use the 713 cleaner diluted and my extractor. Tough stains I use Castrol Super Clean but you have to be weary of the vinyl/plastic because it can stain them.

I only use a couple of brushes really. Good suggestion. I'll add those to the list when I get a chance to update.

I found an almost new radiator at Pick N Pull.

Just realized yesterday that when dealing with a 21 year old car with gunk stuck in the switches and various dash crevices, a plastic fork works wonders for digging it out. So the past two days I have had lunch in my car and dig crap out of the dash and console when I am finished eating. The thing is starting to look civilized again.

Wow, I like! You should go on a road trip to our locales and demonstarte your products on our cars. That way you'd do the warehousing of all of those fantastic products and we'd enjoy the benefits. Might I suggest you start in the Tampa Bay area first since I suggested it? R.

I think Q-Bond might have aplace here?

Sprinkle pixie dust
Drip a unicorn tear in it
More pixie dust
Another unicorn tear
Repeat until done.
Plastic is fixed.

Less than 10 seconds to fix my leaking coolant bottle.
