    Yep, thats what I'm saying,scrub it with a SOS pad rinse and let dry and then grab a can of clear Lacquer,it won't have the gloss of enamel or urethane!! I use clear urethane with flatting base in it to kill the gloss sprayed from a gun!! If your going to paint them,don't try anything that has Oils,Polymers or Silicons in them,They'll be hard to get off to paint,you'll probly get fish eyes if you do!

Leaves smudges if you don't. I got this tip from a guy that has shown vehicles and won trophies for years. Has the full trophy room to prove it. IT works. Cheap too...
    You use that on your tail lights? I may have to try that. Do you also put that on your side turn lights as well?

    I might see what it does on the fender well. Though, they are more of a light gray than dark gray. But if it doesn't work, I'll just clean it off with some Simple Green.

    You have to get to the heater core from inside the car under the dash. I'm glad I didn't find anything in the blower box when I had the blower motor out. It was all clean. The PO must of had the evaporator replaced as it wasn't all crudded up.

    Dang, I'd love to Junk, but we are headed the other direction. What is that a 71 or 72? I love those old Blazers, always wanted one, but couldn't find one without a ton of rust, that one looks pretty good. BTW those fender wells look pretty good.

    That Furniture polish didn't work. It just made it shiny.

    What type of flat or satin black paint should I go with? I had called Duplicolor and they recommended I use their wheel paint with adhesion promotor. Though, I may check out what Rustoleum has as I think their paints are probably better than Duplicolor from what I've read.

    Does anyone know if there are supposed to be hood shims behind the wheel wells on a C4? I took the wheel wells off my 89, and on both of the passenger wells, hood shims feel out. They were beind the wells where the bolts go into the frame.
