    Challenger cleaning question

    Hey all,

    I just got a 97 Challenger, motor was blown and is now rebuilt. The guy who blew it, and subsequently took it out and apart, left his greasy and oily fingerprints all over the seats and deck. They've been on there a while, so I was wondering, apart from a pressure washer, what's the best detergent or cleaning product / technique to get it all clean?

    Thanks,

    Dave

    It is corrosive so make sure you rinse it well . I don't think I would use it for the seats, but for the hull it works. Use it only if the engine is out in the engine compartment as it will remove the paint. I remember someone else suggesting tilex works well on the seats.

    I was going to say, oven cleaner is some harsh stuff, and I don't think that would be good on the seats. The engine bay is pretty well stripped, and it is pretty greasy. Maybe I'll blast it with oven cleaner before I put it all together again.

    Does Tilex work on the seats?

    A quick google of marine grime cleaner turned up a Spray Nine product. Anyone tried it? Or a similar 3M product?

    I mean, it's 12 years old, so I'm not expecting it to win any beauty contests, but it needs to be as spotless as it can so when I tell the wife what I bought, she doesn't shoot me

    I think someone might have stock in simply green max

    Isn't there something really bad for the environment I could use? I mean, it's not enough that my carbon footprint is probably greater than that of a developing nation, but isn't there something with phosphates?
