Well, it was a great Memorial Day weekend. we smoked a pork butt and we brought the tt home to give it a much needed bath, buffing, and waxing. The weather was perfect for this too. Here are some pics....

Before:




Everyone helped, including my DD and my wonderful neighbor who figured out the way to remove baked on black streaks.



The finished product.






It is shinier than the pictures show. She almost looks new again! Now what to do with black mildew type stains on the slide out seals?

I think at this point there isn't enough money in the world to go through this process again anytime soon, although rumor has it DD will work for candy! we actually gave up on the black streaks until my neighbor came out and solved that problem for us. He owns an auto detail business and showed us the way. He said with the right chemicals you can get anything out, the trick is to not strip the paint in the process. We successfully only stripped the wax, getting the black streaks out and then rewaxed it.Edited by: anaro

I and a lot of other people on the forum have had good success cleaning the slide out seals with WD40. Just spray some on a rag and wipe it down. It sometimes takes a little more wd on the dirty spots but mine have always come clean. Just be sure to wash the seals thoroughly to remove the wd after you are done. I then wipe them down with 303 protectant. I do this 2x a year (first in spring then before I store for the winter).

I've heard that Ronson lighter fluid will clean the white seals, but haven't tried it yet.
