Use a little dab of M.E.K. - if that doesn't work, bead blasting is your only other alternative. Heck, blasting and throwing a nice new coat of paint on the cover and plenum are probably a lot easier than trying to clean the items installed on the car. Paint them to match your silver body color (the car's body that is) and that will look pretty sweet. ;^)

Hey Bill Nye, how exactly does boiling water inhibit any "chemical reaction"?


THe LiSt:
Simple Green cleanerr------------- no help
Mineral spirits/paint thinner----- no help!
Castrol Super clean--------------- no help!
Goo Gone-------------------------- no help!
Goof off-------------------------- no help!
Paint Laquer---------------------- WARNING!!!! WILL REMOVE PAINT!!!!!
Kerosene-------------------------- little help!
Acetone--------------------------- little help!

Now the only thing that can say me would be would be a kerosene type rubbing compound. As well as having boiling water to inhibit the reaction of the chemicals. I was tan colored but now people mistake me for Bald Michael Jackson. How bad would soaking my whole AFM piece be?
