#5 of 14 ArmorAll for plastic panels?
Jul 18, 2007 (12:15 pm)
My girlfriend just bought ArmorAll Tire Foam for her tires, and they look great! I was wondering if any one had any input on using this on the plastic body panels on my E.

Haven't used this myself, but Honda offers a panel coating:
Plastic Panel Coating
Genuine Honda plastic panel coating.
For exterior plastic panels only.
Covers minor scuffs and scratches. Quick drying transparent coating.
I've found initial cleanings not to be too easy. Black floor/interior panels show everything. However, w/no carpet, not too bad too vacuum/wash w/soap/water.

Some folks have had good luck with creamy peanut butter on some car's black exterior panels.
The Paint and Body Maintenance & Repair discussion may also be of interest.

Do NOT ever "hose out" the interior. There is far too much wiring running just under the floor and in the door jambs to do that. You will corrode the wiring and have all sorts of electrical gremlins. Take a sponge and a wet cloth to clean it out.

Thanks for the link to the Honda cleaner. I thought that there must be something out there, although I imagine some of the brand name cleaners would do as good of a job. I will try it just for comparison reasons.

tho' I don't like it anymore for regular waxing, Icewax does a good job on the dull panels and seems to last for awhile.

I have a short haired dog that has shed all over the seats. I'm having a really hard time getting the fur off, especially off the bottom of the seats where the fabric is fuzzy. Any ideas?

There is a product out by Scotch called the Fur Fighter that lifts dog and cat hair up pretty easily.
