Try it you might like it. It really penetrates the real heavy hard stuff we all hate. Like around the rear diff and transmission. After sitting overnight you can see alot of it just falling off.

Of course I don't agree with all her opinions!!

That's what I was thinking, though spraying oil on something seems contrary to the idea of cleaning it. Or does mixing ATF with the acetone extend the time it has to dissolve grease before evaporating?

Don't ask me what makes it work so well, all I know is it breaks down the tuff stuff but you do have to do a good steam cleaning job, not just a pressure washer, to get the residue off.

Try wd40 on glue residu from decals.
The oily substance will loosen the contact with the under laying surface and the acetone will take care of the grease... I`m not surpised it works so well, but I`ve never heard that combo before

thats a good tip I wouldnt have considered because acetone usually makes plastic turn to glue. even when I mix it with atf for a penetrant the bottle ends up eating itself.

the steam cleaning probably helps too! I use simple green degreaser and foamy engine gunk on the tough stuff but I only have a cold pressure washer.

Default Adding a door.....

The only thing I have gotten done for the past week was to create more work for myself.

I don't like the fact that to get access to the rear of this thing you would have to crawl over the front seat. So I'm going to make it a three door.

I scored another pair of doors that I will combine and shorten 3-4", keep the ability to roll the window up and down and mount it suicide style on the passenger side.

Here what I have rollin around in my pea brain.
