    Don- That was a lot more interesting to me than I`d expected, thanks for posting it. The part that got *my* attention was the Brake Fluid...

    Good deal, far more appropriate than APC. Pondered this type of stuff as I was getting gas this weekend and trying to avoid getting it on side of car when removing hose from fuel filler.

    Don, is that product sort of a "one-step"?

    Yes, it is a one step, or it can be used as a base layer for the Spray coating ... AFTER a 24 hour cure period.

    Here is a vid of a neglected Porsche showing a 50-50 of the engine cover ...

    I wonder whether Gasoline spills have ever actually been a problem for anybody. I`ve gotten gas on vehicles countless times (sometimes quite dramatically) and it never dented my LSPs that I can recall.

    I get a few drops on the car once in a while, but never all that much. As far as the video goes, he was using some pretty strong solutions of stuff, far stronger (I think) than anything splashed up on a vehicle from wet roads, before the gasoline spray.

    Pump poured gas all over side of car last week, doesn`t seem to have affected it. Still irritating though.

    Do you think it mattered that the gas torture test was last though? With everything else he threw at the panel I don’t know if the order or what was last would have made a difference?

    Yeah, I figured it was already compromised and that just finished it off.

    BUT#1...I`d forgotten how gas utterly trashed the paint around the fuel filler doors (yes, "doors" plural ) on my dad`s XJ6, that must`ve gone through the LSP all right! But eh...Jag lacquer was really fragile back then.

    BUT#2...Gas spills have left a residue on mine, not like it just rinsed off.

    BUT#3..."Gas" is, or can be, different these days. Ethanol, what %, cleaners...it might be risky to extrapolate from my past good fortune.

    Anyhow, this stuff could be simply great for people looking for a good one-step, and I`m glad to see TW bringing such products to the normal-person-consumer (i.e., not just Detailing nuts) market.

    EDIT: ya know, I`m kinda glad the solvents/stuff they tested with did finally kill it. I was wondering whether it`d take abrasion to get it off and how that could factor into things like repaints.

    Two, small percentage of very active solvents in gasoline---benzene and toulene. Paint manufacturers test for reasonable resistance to all hydrocarbon solvents found in gas.

    Any idea how long those have been in pump gas? I mean...that`s some potent stuff even in trace amounts and I`d expect it to compromise LSPs in no time.
