    Does anyone know what removes Armor All from a dash with out removing the finish? I am trying to stick Velcro to it but it wont stick. I was going to lightly sand it down, but i wanted to see if there was something to remove it first. That will be my last option. Thanks Rich

    See what happens when you keep your truck clean! Try some Windex .

    Denatured Alcohol and a cotton rag should do the trick nicely.

    I am worried about taking the finish off you know. I am going to try the alcohol first and see if that works. I was thinking of Goo Gone.

    LMAO that is funny. My van us to be like that, between the coffee and the dust from the cigarettes it was horrible. I dont smoke in this truck at all, and i keep it nice and clean. It is at the car wash almost 1 a week.

    What about Fantastik, that's supposed to cut grease, armor all is kind of a protective grease. I don't think it would or should hurt your dash.

    I use rubbing alcohol. Boss sends it with there wiring harnesses so you can stick the plow/truck switch to the dash. Just used rubbing alcohol on my dads also. So I know it will work. DON'T SAND IT!

    The rubbing alcohol worked thanks for the info. I was going to use the sanding as the last thing. Just a very fine paper and just a little bit.
