Default Armorall and Plastic...

So, a while back while Armoralling the GA'* dash, I accidently (or more like, carelessly) go some on the plastic which covers my speedo and the like. I've tried to get this off with mild clearners...no luck. Any ideas on how to get the Armorall film off?

How about the Armor-All cleaner? You'd think it would be designed to remove Armor-All.

I would guess vinegar would do the job, if you don't mind smelling like a pickle.

Side note: I've been using Meguiars NXT Tech Protect, I recommend this over Armor All. It lasts much longer and doesnt dry out the plastic, it keeps a nice shiny sheen to it.

That I actually did try. Didn't work.

I'll try vinegar next I guess.

Sounds like it.

PJ...Armor all is IMO horrible stuff. I'd suggest something like tire dressing. I use a detailers dressing and it lasts long and doesn't collect dust and dirt like Armor All
