    My dashboard is a dust magnet. The pebble finish makes it difficult to clean with just a wipe down with a towel. Does anyone else experience this? What do you guys do to keep your dash clean?

    I use a microfiber towel and the blue 'fresh' simple green. Spray it on the towel, not the dash and wipe down.

    Dash is tough to keep dust/lint free. I actually use my air compressor with the high velocity nozzle and it blows everything off. I will also hit the AC vents as well.

    This is the best solution I have found so far to keep my dashboard dust free.

    It's a Swiffer 360 duster. You don't need the handle. I just buy the replacement dusters and keep one in the glove box.

    California Duster, not the large one, but they make a smaller version just for cleaning the dash and interior.

    I'm going retro; just have to hack out a spot for the 8.4 screen...having my bedroom shag carpet modified now...works great with my PW7 HC...next mods are curb feelers, led lights in the headliner to look like the Milky Way and finally, chromed chain link steering wheel...RAD!! Altogether, I figure those mods will drop the ETs by .3...look for the video

    Get some 303 Aerospace Protectant and a few quality microfibers, protect, dust, and give it just a hint of shine. If you prefer a bit more gloss Meguiars Water Based Dressing smells great and leaves a nice dry-to-the-touch, lightly glossy finish. 303 Aerospace protectant is a quality product, after trying many many products, these are the only two I use anymore.

    ... I'm replacing the navigation with a road map, gangster white walls, fender skirts and frenching in the antenna, but not the one for the tv, just the am/fm 8-track combo. Look for it adjacent to the CB. Finally, the paint does need a multi-colored metal flake mural...I'm thinking fighting Palominos on a sun drenched palm treed beach. Video coming...gnarly!!
