Freedoms just another word for nothing left to lose

About ten years ago I spilled some flourescent a/c dye on the wife's white van fender- a nice foot long streak-I thought I was dead meat- no cleaner known to man would remove it- I tried everything-- but after about a week it faded out of existence- I have seen this several times-- even with leaks in the Fall that need to be rejuvenuted in the Spring-- so I usually don't clean them anymore-- just let them fade-- It is easy to tell a fresh leak versus a faded one - If the leak is fixed the dye will soon disappear on its own-- sunlight even makes it fade faster............

-------------------------
The number one A/C diagnostic tool there is- is to know how much refrigerant is in the system- this can only be done by recovering and weighing the refrigerant!!
Just a thought.... 65% of A/C failures in my 3200 car diagnostic database (GM vehicles) are due to loss of refrigerant due to a leak......

I use Simple Green on everything. Have not had any spills on vehicles yet. So not sure how well it would work.

Parts and Brake Cleaner, recommended by the folks who sold us the Recycle machine, cheap and easy, and evaperates quickly.
