Hi everyone, I just bought a 1994 camaro from a private seller. The previous owner must have put 4 coats of armor all on the dash, door panels, etc.... Does anyone know how to get armor all off??? I cannot stand armor all. I have seen a few pictures of #40 on interior trim and it looks amazing. I want my interior trim to look new not greasy. Do you think that #39 would take the armor all off??? Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

yes #39 should take off the armor all. good luck. remeber to hit it with #40 after your done so it has some uv protection.

Hey,

:iagree: with 2000. The #39 should eliminate the AA and give you a great base to apply the #40!

Cheers!

where can I buy this??? I went to murrays and advance autoparts and they don't have it (gee what a surprise) I know I can order it through meguiars's website but I was hoping to get it today. If I were to order it through meguiars how long would it take to get it??? Thanks in advance

try a napa or other car part/paint supply store.
yes it's just a spray on, wipe off product. I would spray it on a applicator than wipe it down instead of spraying right on the dash, that way you don't get any on the windshield by accident.

I called the paint store my dad buys his supplies from and they had #39 and #40 and they only wanted $8.50 a bottle, that is cheaper than the meguiars site. So I am going out to get that armor all junk off my interior.

I LIVE IN THE UK
I GOT A FORD GALAXY & WANT TO DO A FULL CLEAN OF THE INTERIOR

delboy,

What I like to do for the interior is clean pretty much everything with All Purpose Cleaner. I use it to wipe down the dash and all plastic pieces. I also use it to remove some stains from the carpet by spraying and scrubbing with a brush. I like to dress everything using Hyper Dressing because it allows you to have 4 different finishes depending on which dilution you use.

For any odors I use Car Odor Eliminator (http://www.meguiars.com/store_meguiars/product_detail.cfm?sku=G-23)

This stuff works great!

Any other questions you have please ask. I did my best to answer this but your question was rather general so it was tough to know what you were looking for. If you could tell me more specifically what you need I will be able to help better.

Hope this helps!

i got a couple of stains on 2 seat's & i want to get the dash like showroom finish / shiny as valeters does ?

I did not say general, I said "All Purpose Cleaner" which is a Meguiar's product which can be diluted to different strengths. It is very helpful for around-the-house use as well. Since it is a concentrate, you get a lot of product for a great price.

Hey,

The new ALL Purpose Cleaner is green in color. The older APC+(non-butyl formula) was blue and also an excellent product!! The old APC Butyl formula was also a darker green.

If you can get the APC+ or the new APC, buy it. You will love the stuff!

Cheers! :)
