Yea I know. I was suprised with the condition of it. I got a big jug of that orange stuff Eric was talking about. Simple Green doesn't cut it for my nose. (Used too much of that stuff in the Army) That orange stuff works wonders. Gonna take another pic tommorow when it gets daylight again.

When you've got brake dust it removes it too

simple green (if i remember right) eats through the clearcoat..

the orange isn't that tough but it will clean almost anything

it'* good under the hood anywhere

or if you were working on your car, and you got oil/grease on your paint, it won't harm your paint or clearcoat in any way but it will remove the contaminants

Glad I could be of help
