I have a problem with what seems to be mold on my window moldings. This is
something new to me since I did not have this problem in NY but I do here in
The dealer replaced the moldings once for me, but they will not replace them
again. They say it can be cleaned off. Nothing I have tried will clean it.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to clean the moldings with out
damaging the rubber and metal frames, and to protect it from further damage?
Armorall and similar products do not stop the problem.
Thanks for any suggestions
How have you and your wife been?
How is your project car?
Where have I been? Well as you know chronic pain is enough to deal with
without dealing with some of the posters here. So I just unsubscribed.
I miss not using my years of experience to help others, but some people were
just too much to deal with on top of everything else.
How have I been? Not good. Constant downhill.
Oh well, One day at a time.
Have a good evening.
Other than dealings with idiot lawyers, we've been doing
fine. Got some projects around the house taken care of this
summer, took a nice but short vacation to Door County in
Still hope to get down to Florida as the cold sets in, but
as you know from your years in New Yawk, when it gets
colder, it gets busier in this business.
Ah, the 'cuda...
well, after severly breaking the transmission last July, I
rounded up all the parts I needed to repair it. I bought an
old A body trunnion style 4 speed from a friend, took the
gears out and used 'em in another case I had bought from
another friend. This got me a lower first and second gear
ratio, so now that thing really launches like a banshee!
New bearings and synchros and it shifts like brand new.
Got a line on a very sharp 63 Plymouth from yet another
friend last week, just have to talk the wife into letting me

Well, there's always gona be someone disagreeing with you

Sorry to hear that.
That's the plan, whether you're healthy or not! ;-)
No.. I'm still here occasionally.
Oh, you meant the OTHER Bozo!
JL... dont you know that striving keeps the spirit alive?
Sorry to hear it's not all that good. Good Luck!
I dont think you need all that much (25%) bleach...
But I suggest going over it first with TSP (Hardware/H.I. centers like
Lowes)... this works good on Bathrooms with Latex Paint and that's close.
THEN use the bleach solution before you seal.
Hi Backyard, How are you doing?
Glad to hear you are still around. By the way, a while back, a long while
back I had asked you if you had ever taken a headlight out of the new VW
My dad had one in his shop and he did not see how it came out. He called
the VW dealer and they said you need special tools and it had to be done at
Well, while walking, trying to walk around my apartment complex one day I
saw a resident working under his hood of his New style VW Bug. I asked if
he ever had the headlight out. He said it was no problem. Under the hood,
on each headlight housing there is a lever that you have to pull, This
releases the headlight and then it just comes right out, Just disconnect the
I think he said on one side the battery had to come out but no big deal.
I guess the VW dealer in NY was just trying to drum up business.
Thought you might be interested since you are much more likely to run into
one these days than I am.
Good hearing from you.
