About the same here, would have been a great day to detail or start learning alittle body work on my test hood.

Instead I have been all over trying to get another heat gun and more sanding supplies.

happy saturday...it's in the 60's here in Crap-chester...tomorrrow it drops like a rock and snow next week.....
Still trying to organize my garage, we moved into this house 3 months ago so I have been busy with inside projects. I got all the benches and cabinets in place, still have to do a little drywall work and run somemore plugs for my welder and compressor. With this new garage I gained 4 feet on the length and 6 feet on the width. I'll post some pix of the man cave once I start working on it.
On another note, I did start the Falcon for the first time this year and backed it out, I may take it for a spin later.
Hey does this bar & grill serve chicen wings......

It's 69 degree's with a 40% humidity in my garage and going to go play around alittle bit.

Going to remove the stupid pin strips, decals and dealer local off my jeep, maybe give it a good wash.

Wife and kids gone, so might even play around wet sanding the test hood. Got an ideal I've been thinking about if I start it I will do a write-up and post it, rather the test is good or bad!

Also will use my wifes camera. LOL!!!!!!

the weather here for the entire week is crap.
Yesterday, I decided to take a break from organizing my garage and built a work bench for the basement. I took a small area in the basement and "claimed" it as mine. Just a place to listen to tunes and tinker.

Hey RoboGeek

What type/brand micro-fibers did you get? Remeber thought wash in warm water with a tide type detergent only before you use and DO NOT ADD OR APPLY ANY TYPE OF FABRIC SOFTENERS AT ALL!! And I always dry in the dryer on the timed section for about 30 to 40 minutes, AND NO FABRIC SOFTENER SHEETS!!

They will come out soft-fluffy and lint free, I have beeen doing this way for over 5 or 6 years and still have some of my older micro-fibers left and there still as soft and fluffy as some of the good/better quality micro-fibers out there.

Also which meguiars wash did you get?

Try this out.


You could spray some on a micro-fiber towel and rub along where you've got the compound and wax on, also if it's not working fast enough or good get a old toothbrush and spray your micro-fiber towel down and rub along your trim to get it wet with the #39 and use the toothbrush to agitate it with the toothbrush and then let saturate for alittle bit and then rub back over it with the micro-fiber.

If it didn't remove try another application or two.

Also another tip/trick to remove gum or ? from carpet you can saturate the area with vegetable oil then pick or scrub away.

Let me know what you tried and if you can take some pics, also this is why we always tape the trim and moldings or whatever we don't want to get cleaner-polish or waxes on.

The first time I had to spend over a couple hours trying to get all the dried wax off/out of my trim and rubber moldings I learned how important taping was and that the 20 minutes or so used for taping is alot better then the 2 hours of cussing and not to mention how bad it looks to have a nice glossy wet looking car or ? and then see all the dried wax on the trim or rubber.LOL!!

Posted over from MOL that was wrote by Tim Lingor.

I would suggest Meguiar's #40. The key is to apply it thoroughly and then allow it to sit for a few minutes. Then wipe off with a dedicated MF towel.

A couple suggestions:

1. Apply and remove the #40 in the shade and on a cool surface

2. Apply the #40 to a foam applicator and really massage it into the vinyl and allow the product to sit for a few minutes

3. Be sure to wipe it down with a MF towel. This will provide an even, uniform look to the vinyl.


Also found this thread for cloth tops by Mike phillips

Meguiar's offers a cleaner and a protectant for convertible tops and actually worked with the Haartz company to develop these formulas. Because this is a cloth type material, you always have to be very careful whenever you're working on the top so that you don't agitate and thus fray the fibers. Soft brushes used gently will work fine, just don't get to aggressive and scrub real hard while cleaning.

After cleaning and the top is completely dry, or if you're top doesn't need to be cleaned, you can apply a protectant to help preserve the top material.

While these two products are currently only available in our Marine line, you can still use them on automotive convertible fabric tops.

M71 Canvas Cleaner



M72 Canvas Protectant



Also remembered this info that has a video and using the raggtop products which are great!

You know, I had briefly heard of Garage journal before, but I had never really checked it out.
While there are some guys on there with places that are unworkable (too expensive, too big, too much time necesessary, etc), there are some good quality garages on there. I signed up, I liked it so much! After all, when you've got 4 cars, you've gotta have good garage space! Very Happy

My garage will be a combination of "show garage" and "functional garage". I do all my own work on my old cars, engine rebuilds, welding, etc so the garage needs to be a woking garage. I really would like a nice epoxy floor but weld spatter leaves burn marks, so I'm still deciding on that on. I also have a ton of automotive collectables that I want to display.
Some of those garages on that forum are nicer then my house. I have to laugh when I see spotless tool boxes, white benches and tiles floors....is this a garage or a musuem...lol I'm not mocking, but it's just not what would work for me.
