Specs:
1988 Chrysler Conquest TSi
Automatic
117k
R04 (Mexican Red, ooohhh)
Sport Handling Package! (16x9 rears, and 16x8 fronts)

This car is 100% stock. It's an Arizona car 8) , so it's rust-free. It had been sitting, waiting, for almost 2 years, and not regulary driven for even more. It was by mere chance that this car came into my life, and I am so glad it did.

In a new light, years of neglect is sadly obvious:

I've just been using really strong degreaser (it's called Purple Power) and old hand towels, wrapped tight around my index and middle fingers. It works really well, but really dries out my fingers.

I see lots of people use WD40, a paint brush, and microfiber towels, but I have yet to try it.
