So, I didn't get hers done....
As for my ZJ, I didn't do that either... I think I'm going to do the black stone guard paint on all my cladding instead.
I already took off my front bumper skin and painted the whole area it covered in the black rock guard, so it will all match if I do so.

Here's a pic of mine. Whadda ya think? Black stone guard all the way around or the oil/thinner mix??

Hahah you got caught!

I would still do the linseed on the mirrors, handles, latches, etc... Even if you painted the cladding and bumpers

Yes, I did get caught
I'll have to wait a few days for her to forget, and try to surprise her again.
Also, I did plan on doing all plastic above the cladding. It only makes sense to.

The dew has set in for the evening here. Will the dew effect the results, if I were to do it in the mernin' before I leave for work, or should it be completely dry?

I bet if you just took a big towel and slightly dried it, and then did it it would be fine, I don't think it would mess it up at all.

It should work, I haven't tried it yet, I need to though, just start in the corner and do a test spot first, better safe than sorry ha, should be ok though, I did my center console with it

If I do my door handles, do I need to do anything to protect the paint around it? What will this mixture do to paint?

You could tape it off, but I just went and was EXTRA EXTRA careful to not touch the paint, I did touch the paint a couple times but then just wiped it off ASAP and no harm done. Just be careful and take your times on the parts that could touch your paint... I mean it is paint thinner lol

I actually poured water on the rags to make them kinda wet, and then put in a grocery bag and tied it up, friend of the family has a shop I just took it to his place and put in where we throw away all the used oil jugs. If you wet them down put them in a bag and stick in the trash/dumpster. I'm sure it'll be fine. haha

I think just dumping the unused thinner and linseed, along with rags would be ok, if you just throw in the recyclable bin that you put all the used paper and cardboard in...

That's disposing of properly right?

.... KABOOOM haha

I use ATF on headlights and trim,seems to last through several washings.
Takes about 5 minutes to do entire Grand Cherokee. Does not hurt paint,just wipe on and wipe off.
