Re: Hows the best way to clean up 72 door panels

As far as scuffs and gouges go, after cleaning I actually sanded these down until they looked consistant then I painted them with SEM (actually a three step process). I think they turned out really good.

Re: Hows the best way to clean up 72 door panels

Thought I'd revive this thread to show that, yes indeed, Magic Eraser works wonders on Parchment interior parts. I haven't hit my door panels yet, but you can see what it did to my sun visors.

Re: Hows the best way to clean up 72 door panels

They look great... bright. Be sure to show the results with your door panels.

Re: Hows the best way to clean up 72 door panels

So I think my door panels are slightly beyond the power of the Magic Eraser. It did clean them some, but the results weren't as dramatic as on the sun visors as shown in my earlier post...see for yourself in the before/after shots below.

Re: Hows the best way to clean up 72 door panels

I would try BleechWhite tire cleaner and a stiff brush.

Re: Hows the best way to clean up 72 door panels

Also as mentioned by cdowns gojo hand cleaner works real good. It is a solvent without grit hand cleaner.
I bought a vinyl truck seat that had been sitting out in the sun for a couple months and some kids had hit it with some spray paint in a few spots. Gojo got it all off. Good stuff.

Re: Hows the best way to clean up 72 door panels

They look pretty good to me. I don't know, so I'm asking is Bleech White safe on the plastic? I know Spray Nine cleans interior panels fantastic, but then come chalky panels you can scrape away with your fingernail

Re: Hows the best way to clean up 72 door panels

A combo of dish soap and cleanser with a short bristle brush has cleaned many different things for me... Those visors look new Wow
