hi guys, on our recent trip i was given instructions by my beloved significant other half to clean the dead wildlife off the front windows of the van after we had set up, whilst i was obeying, er i mean doing it of my own free will , a fellow sympathiser, oops i mean caravaner, gave me this tip, wash windows before leaving home and wrap with clingfilm, once on site remove clingfilm, result, clean windows all ready for being nosey, oops ,i mean watching wildlife out of. pete
hi pete on our second caravan we had very bad frosting on the outside of the gally window i tried washing up liqiud,white spirit,but nothing would shift it,then on one really nice sunny weekend i decided to t-cut the bonnet of the car,and the window on the caravan caught my eye, its never looked so good,only thing was i had to do the whole caravan,and wax it,we were only there for the weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"T-cut" on the windows, fine! After all it really looks, feels and smells like Brasso in a different guise. On perspex windows, good
"T-cut" on the body panels is a big "no-no"! The paint on the body panels is purely decorative and is only microns thick. It is actually "printed" rather than painted on. If one uses an abrasive like T-cut, the finish will soon be removed and the aluminium will show through.
There is a product called "SILKY" which is obtainable from most caravan accessory shops. This is a non abrasive paste which cleans the panels without abrading them. Great for getting the dreaded black streaks off. Once the panels have been gone over with "SILKY", a good polish such as "Mer" or a good car polish to finish off gives an excellent finish.
