I use to do auto body work and painting. Was told this by an old auto body guy. To use Goof Off, and yes it does work. Tired of trying to get road grime, overspray and just the accumulated crap that gets on to your Escorts body? Well Goof Off is just plain easy to use and it's a use and lose, for the dirt and grime. Use a clean rag, apply some Goof Off to a rag, dab the spot/spots with it, wait a few and then rub the spot/spots with it. Depending on the spot/spots they will come off very fast and easy with not much elbow grease, or none at all. For painted parts after you treated, clean the area, then re wax. I always have Goof Off on hand. It's great for so many other things. Like you, I love working on my Escorts, but just don't like spending most of the day cleaning and the grime, etc off it. Also it is a lot easier on cars clear coat, then lets say paint thinner. Give it a try, i'm sure you will come to love this stuff and all the things it can clean.
