But I wanted to ask, is the Mr. Clean magic eraser still the best to use when cleaning the Fieros internal vinyl? Or is there something else? And if the Mr. Clean eraser is still good Has anyone tried the Extra power eraser? Or would that be to much? Thanks Todd
I used a magic eraser on my jeep, and it almost seemed to take color out of the vinyl and bleach it. I was disappointed, it looked ugly and it was visually different from the dash. I always find 409 does the trick.
I use any of the cleaning products like Simple Green, Fantastic, 409. Mequires also has vinyl and leather cleaners that are very good. On rubber, I love Mequires Rubber Cleaner, especially on tires for car shows. Ive never noticed any ill effect from Mr Clean Erasers myself.
Thank you all for the replies. I'll have to pick up some 409 and a Mr. Clean Eraser and give it a go. I'm going to be repainting my center console, so if it gets a lil bleached that's fine. Its already light gray, so I don't think ti will notice much
Ok cool, now not to change the subject of the original post But.. When I go to paint my center console.. Do I have to precoat it with something like a base? Or just paint it straight charcoal?
And instead of making a new post.. What would be a good general purpose grease I can use on the fiero? For like the linkages under the shifter Or the door hidges Other things ect thoughout the fiero Thanks again guys Todd
If you are using paint for vinyl ( which you should), follow what the can recommends. I use the lithium grease in the spray can with the small plastic tube from wally world. Its good for getting the grease onto specific areas like door hinges, etc. On plastic parts I use the spray silicon.
I wont be painting till summer, just gathering info atm. But im glad you said somthing. Cause thats what I was going to use lol So dont use alcohol at all? Will just cleaning with a mr. Clean eraser and drying with a good cloth be enough or.. Is there somthing else I should do to prep the surface. I thought I read somewhere there was a special primer you use for vinyl? Or just go right for the paint? Todd
