The small period of time it looks pristine is worth the headaches. After 3-5 days it still looks okay, especially if you aren't examining it close up. I'm in love with this color.

Nobody knows because nobody ever let it go to voicemail.

Would you be brave enough to find out?

How best to care for the M package headliner (whatever it's called-I forget)????

On the door sill I've got a little fuzz.

Should I use a lint brush? Not the kind that's a tape roll, rather the type where you brush one way to clean and against it to take the lint etc off brush?????

My grandmother used to hose her car out. I guess that's a bad idea to get that lint out. Lol

I'd just use a lint roller or just some mildly sticky tape wrapped around my hand to pull off the lint. I haven't done anything to mine. I just make sure that no one's hair touches the headliner.

The Gliptone GT15 maintenance spray can be used on the Alcantara (that's what it's called, by the way). I haven't tried it and probably won't unless something horrible happens.

Thank you for the links and good advice. The bleach, soft scrub and turpentine worked great.

Good ol' fashion spit shining works well... for polishing the tractor.

What are y'all (or your detailers - for those of you who are less hands on ) using for removing bugs and stubborn spots? As I was cleaning my car today I noticed lots of squashed bugs that didn't come off with the normal cleaning shampoo. I used some 3M compounding liquid, which worked pretty well, but is there something meant for this purpose? I worry about using to compounding agent on too much of the car. I had at least 6 spots pretty heavily bug-splattered.

Also, what's a good product for cleaning the inside and outside of the windshield? I have a few stubborn bugs, etc. on the outside, and I'm getting some streaking on the glass on the inside. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Go to your local motorcycle shop and pick up a can of this stuff. It is unreal!!! I use it on every inch of my bike and it gets everything off (tar, bird poop, bug guts, etc) effortlessly. All the bike guys swear by this stuff. When I get around to washing my car, I'm gonna try it on there too. It cleans and polishes at the same time for an instant shine.

Thanks for the tip.

Let me get a black leather vest, grow a beer gut, and tattoo an angel and a hooker's name on my scrawny biceps, and then I might be able to enter such an institution
