Want to see how crazy I am?

We took the Nova camping last weekend. With the back seat folded down, (and some 4" foam pads), it makes a very nice mobile bed. we spent two nights and it got pretty dirty. But one of the reasons I wanted the wagon in the first place was to be able to use it without worrying too much. Don't get me wrong, I still worry a lot...

The worst of the damage from the weekend was getting tiny drops of white road paint from a road striping truck that I couldn't get away from on the drive home. Anyone know how to get that off?

Other than that, just a bunch of dust and bugs and dirt that can be cleaned easy enough. And a successful camping trip that didn't involve me sleeping on the ground...next stop, Route 66.

Oh my God, what a blast you must have had! The smile on your friends face says it all. That paint can sometimes be a bear to get off. But try the most mild first. A mile wax and grease cleaner, would be the first thing I would do. But also, a "clay bar", give that a try, they work like magic.

Wow, that pic could be a post card from back in the day! I think it's cool that you're using it like it was meant to be!

The post about the clay bar is good. They do work pretty good.

If the paint on the car is fully cured you can try some mineral spirits.
Try it on a inconspicuous spot 1st.

Its alway kool to have you bed in the back.

I carry a air mattress & blanket in the back of my BURB ...just in case.

I also keep a brush under each seat so you can clean off you feet before getting in when its wet & sticky ,sugar sand sucks.

Nice ride make sure that guy ain't "checking your tire for a leak"
