Sorry to bring up an old thread... but i just read through the whole thing (my eyes are burning for some reason... im not quite sure why though)

I saw someone wrote about 3M Marine stuff.... My old man works for 3M and he brought some of this stuff home. Works great on the windows, but be very careful on the black canvas. It will leave white stains if you apply too much (my sister found out the hard way, the top of my jeep has white swirl marks on it). I probably would keep away from using it on the black canvas, amd just use it on the windows - works a treat.

Also, this person (sorry... i read your post a while ago and i cant remember which page ), spoke about microfibre cloths. These are great aswell. I keep one in my Jeep all the time.

If anyone in Perth is keen to try this stuff out - perhaps PM me and i will see what i can organise through my old man, since he can get it free through work. (i believe its called "demo products" )

Cheers
Will

To add my 2 cents ....

Staun's Massojet attachment is excellent. Helps to get up under the car, and also puts some good pressure out. Right size for poking into chassis rail holes, and up under bumpers.

I use Mother's back to black on black plastic, my XJs black was a bit faded, with 1 application it has come up quite good, another 1 or 2 applications should see it looking factory.

I got mine from SuperCheap Auto.

It's a cleaner as well as blackener. Works really well on the XJ roof racks, door handles, window surrounds etc.

Default Toothpaste !

Toothpaste is a very fine abrasive and works great on the plastic windows. I gave mine the treatment lately with some on a cheap electric polishing/buffing mop from supercheap ($30). They look like new now.....and smell minty !

Ok I just read the entire thread not alot in here about engine bay cleaning! What I have done in the past is use degreaser let it do it's thing for a minute then hose off, but what I have found is the degreaser leaves stains on the paint that are hard to polish out and I also had problems with water getting in and frying electrical relays. any suggestions?

Ok I did the whole engine bay cleaning bit today.
Step 1. Use WD40 on all electrical bits & anything I thought might not like water.
Step 2. Cover alternator with plastic bag.
Step 3. Spray degreaser on greasy bits (avoid getting on paint)leave for 5 min.
Step 4. Hose off (avoid useing high pressure around rocker cover & electrics).
Step 5. Take a drive to dry engine bay.
Step 6. Spray tyre foam all over engine & engine bay.
Step 7. Use a soft cloth to remove any residue.

Most of these tips came from guys on this forum, I just thought I'd put it all together as a How To for fellow newbies.
