The instructions tell you to degrease with liquid dish soap and then spray and wipe with trisodium phosphate. Did you all do this step? (I finally break down and buy the car wash trip with wax....)
GeolJon, Re your quote, although I'm not a geologist and never played one on tv, during one week in 1999 I did witness 5 or 6 eruptions of the Soufriere Hills volcano on Montserrat; the best eruptions to watch were at night, when it was easier to see the ejecta, like large boulders glowing red-orange rolling down its flanks into the jungle. The villa we were in had shutters, but no glass (like they all did, to allow the air to circulate) and ash would drift through the slats. In the morning, there were small pits on top of the lap top computer's lid due to the high humidity combining with the high sulphur content of the ash and (I'm guessing) making a bit of sulphuric acid. I bought some souvenir post cards of the volcano and when customs was checking my stuff on the way out I joked that I really didn't think it was a volcano in the picture, but was probably just a Marley family picnic making all the smoke. You'd have thought I'd dissed the Queen. "You cant say that about Bob Marley, sir!! I'm confiscating this postcard!!" At the end of that same week we'd had a Class 1 hurricane; flew out to Oregon coast in time for a low grade typhoon to blow in. Interesting times. Lots of earth quakes living in Alaska. Mostly they're kind of cool, until you get hit by one that goes on for a bit. Starts you wondering about "to run outside or maybe stay here and die warm?"
