This stuff is kind of like Great Stuff. Expands and if you get it on your hands or fingers you have to wear it off.
OEM paint is a baked finish so you can use paint solvent or laquer thinner "sparingly" on a rag to remove the goo. I recommend doing it in the shade or the garage. Wipe with wet rag and dry with fresh one. After the goo is removed use any light cutting buffing compound by hand to polish the haze off, then apply a coat of wax. I use solvent on OEM finishes to remove paint overspray at work and used sparingly it will not harm the paint.

Ok. So I'm thinking about getting a titanium Engine block and titanium roatating assembley and running a twin turbo, twinsupercharger, set-up with 150 pounds of boost.

On my Savini wheels.

The other problem with this is that with that much power, and those wheels, this thing would vibrate so bad the earth would repel it... It would levitate...

I am so glad I got rid of my boat anchors. After all the hassles, it feels good to feel good about my wheels. I know I now have a ton of funds invested in wheels at this point, but I'm now happy with what I have. Makes me smile when I drive my car now. I just had to make it happen and be done with it.

It will happen for you too, PQ.

I'm actually about to get my posting REALLY seriously cut down on. I'll be on the site MUCH less.

Instead of 20 posts per day, I may be down to around 15.....
