Hey,

Today I was watching Crank & Chrome on TNN
and they where talkin about detailing, one of the things they used to get the film off WindSheilds was Bartenders Friend, its like a
milder form of Ajax... So I went to the store
tonight and bought some to try..... WOW! lightly scrubbed my windshield and all the grime and other crap vanished! I was impressed... BUT Thats not all, been an obsessed bitch I am, I tried it on my front lights, I have sevre yellow on these lights, so I scrubbeb lightly again, washed it off and viola! Loverly lenses, but then it dried
and left it all misty..
I shit myself, but then I got my car polish
out an polished them... now they are shiney
as hell!!!

NEXT! My plenum (3.3) was dirty with burnt oil stains etc, I puts some of this Bartenders Friend on for grins, scrubbed it
like a mo-fo, and it came up like the
car just came out of the Factory..

I was going to take a picture tonight but
wife`s Digital Camera has to charge on
batteries... Will tommorow though...

Just a tip for you all..

DUMB ASS ME! I got the name mixed up,
Its BAR KEEPERS FRIEND not BAR TENDERS FRIEND
dib shit me :)

Here is the homepage (http://www.barkeepersfriend.com/products.htm)]

Yep, it helped with my lenses on my headlights, like I said though I had to get the polish out due to the abrasive stuff this is... so I would test it on a small area first.. I gave my headlights some hard
elbow grease but they look great now.

Done wifes to.. got browny points for that, her`s is a 91 ford escort which she abuses (Dont clean it) came out great..

It's a household cleaning product that you should be able to get at any local grocery store. I missed that episode. I usually watch all of those shows on TNN such as Horsepower TV and such. They have some good ideas on there. :)

Si, did you use just elbo grease to polish the headlights? can you give any specifics if there are any more? I have one new headlight (original was broken when I bought the car) that's shiny but the drivers side one is dull and faded. I tried polishing it up with no success.

Elbow grease must be an English saying only :) It means rubbing hard (oooeer)

I awoke this morning with condensation over my car and I obviously didnt go a good job cleaning this shit off my Windsheild, a bit mirky... Gotta put some Glass cleaner on.. :)

Bart, It worked on my lenses, and for the money its worth a try, I really want to get behind them now, anyone know how to remove or seprate the lenses from the rest of the housing?

Si, there are a lot of phrases that are common to UKers and Canadians (and probably most of the commonwealth)that Americans don't know, or at least thats how its been in my experience.
