2. How about removing dried, sun-baked spilled cola from the roof without damaging the paint?
3. And... after having some fun and scuffing up your body cladding (Laredo), is it possible to buff out your well-earned battle scars and how?
Thanks, in advance, for your input and I'm looking forward to being part of the wonderful world of Jeep!
I can't help you with the first question, other than to say that if you end up replacing your tires, have wal-mart do it. They sell white letter goodyears for the wj at about a third of the price as regular tire shops. As for the cola, if it's sun-baked on your paint, I'd say the damage has already been done-go ahead and wash it off, or get some rubbing compound if its stuburn. I've seen what cola does to a cooper penny and can only imagine what it might do to a clear coat. Because it's the roof, you don't have to worry about how the spot looks as no one will see it. I'd just make sure that if it did somehow damage the paint, that you remove the damage and seal it back up to prevent rust. With respect to the body cladding scuffs, I don't know of anything that will take out scratch marks or gouges, but I do use a product called "trim detailer" made by Meguirer's, which makes my body cladding look like new. I'd highly reccomend picking up a bottle. I found it at my local Meijer's store.
