Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    Hi guys-

    What are you using to remove gunk from pickup shells? I've got a pair of Barts that have some dried grayed buffing compound on them and I'd like to get them back to charcoal.

    Use some Meguiar's plastic & vinyl cleaner.
    It will take the dry wax off and make the plastic look new.
    Any auto parts store will have it.
