Armor won't ever be used on the inside of my Jeep. I usually just use a damp microfiber cloth and that cleans up most of the grime that finds its way inside my Jeep.

That was my first thought...

That and I never use anything but mild soap and water to wipe down interior panels. That "shiny" stuff usually just attracts dirt.

On another subject....I'm considering doing a side project for myself. I can get them Chinese HIDs, 4", 7" and 9" and apparently the CREE LED lights as well direct from the manufacturer from one of our parts importers we use for my 9-5 job. Who am I kidding, 7-5 job that ain't what it was.... Oh well, I still have a job and it almost pays the bills. Thus the need for a side project. Any takers?

So I've been searching around for a rebuilt ax15 and I found one for $500 out the door with the exchange of my old tranny. It has a 1 year unlimited mile warranty (shop had plenty of great reviews). With that being said, is this a decent deal? Should I stick with the ax15 or would anyone recommend going to the nv3550?

Im the original owner. about 17 yrs now.... Whatever they do to make the dash gray from the factory, this crap is eating it away.

If @ 1st you don't succeed, grind it, hammer it, weld it, drink a beer and try again.

Ujoint, if you can stop the melt cover over with epoxy or resin like for fiberglass (my suggestion) sand it down and paint it up. Sucks it happened but if it has empty a small pocket and grab a can of resin to get er done. Good opportunity for including a switch panel, gauge pane,l or just a cool hoochymadingy that is one of a kind. Hey Wifey can't complain if you point at a melted dash and say. "Look at what these bums did to me!!"

Just pissy about the situation. Shouldnt be able to buy a product that is for cleaning the interior of your car and have it melt your airbag cover. Maybe I'll just knock it all down with some sand paper and hit it with some plastic paint. No wife to give me an ok.. I got rid of her when she said "it's me or the jeep."

If @ 1st you don't succeed, grind it, hammer it, weld it, drink a beer and try again.

you can get a york210 at the yard.. make sure its a 210.. Early 80's wagoneers, 80's volvo's and mercedes cars have them to. Make sure you get one with a double V clutch fan. Dont cut the wires on them to close as you'll have to crimp onto them. You will have to buy a few things from KillMe.. I mean Kilby.. Alternator pulley for one.... If you need the solenoid or switches for the ARB I have a brand spanking still in the box set I'll $ ya cheap. Wiring is easy for the ARB, wiring for the York is even easier. Get two gauges, one for the ARB one for the accessories, some rubber air line hose, a belt, some fittings, a 2.5 gallon tank and your done.... oh and fab the mount bracket.. or buy one for 100.00 (yikes)....

If @ 1st you don't succeed, grind it, hammer it, weld it, drink a beer and try again.

Try the "son of a gun" interior cleaner. Yellow bottle and it makes the interior look really nice.
