Airplane Wax Wash didn't work. McGuires worked somewhat with a lot of effort.
Any ideas what liquid product California is using for snow and how do I remove it.
Walbernize is the worse thing to use on the rock guards. Leaves a residue. I have used Aero Cosmetic Wash/Wax as well as WD 40. I would use WD 40 if you have tar or a film on them. That works decently. I then use the Aero Cosmetic Wash/Wax to give them a longer lasting shine. I don't think I would use WD 40 on the window shields. For that a bug and tar remover might work, but I would spray Aero Cosmetic Wash/Wax and let it sit awhile first. I also spray Aero Cosmetic and let it set awhile for the upper part of the unit. But you have to let it soak a bit. Not sure I would use WD 40 on the aluminum.
