I don't have any problems with my woman. The dishwasher is clean when I'm done. If it breaks I have to fix it so I don't get any crap.

My woman is pretty good about me taking over the living room, the RC room and the patio, when it comes time to clean my cars. But i have a feeling that if i put it in the dishwasher she would probably beat me with the damn broomstick. Where is loopedout on this convo.? I wanna see if his wife lets him wash his rides in the dishwasher.

Does WD-40 attack the plastic? It's petroleum-based correct?

Nah, doesn't hurt it at all. Actually makes it shine like new.

I used to just blow it off and pick at it with a brush and simple green on a rag. Then I looked at how nice a couple of my buddies rides looked and I started their process. Not a lot different than others here, but faster than some of them...

- Strip off motor and radio
- Spray the crap out of the car with Simple Green (I dilute on 50%)
- After it soaks 5-10 minutes, blow everything off with an air hose
- Douse the car in WD-40
- After it soaks about 15 minutes, blow all the excess off

Minus the wear (on the bottom of the chassis, etc.), the car looks like new afterwards and can be done in an hour or two. Having an 8ight with only 11 screws to remove all the goodies makes it pretty simple. While I'm blowing it off I usually see anything that needs work or replaced.
