Re: cal2-29 rub rail
Rub it with a clean cloth DAMPENED with MEK (Methyl Ethyl Ketone). Use chemical resistant gloves - MEK is nasty stuff with a kind of ammoniac edge if you breath it. It will slightly soften the vinyl for a short time and smooth the edges of any scratches or nicks. After you're done cleaning, wipe on Armour All or another vinyl conditioner. Even badly chalked & sunburned vinyl will come out looking near new. Black rub marks simply disappear.
Note: MEK is a solvent, not to be confused with MEKP (Methyl Ethyl Ketone Peroxide) which is the catalyst for polyester resin.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
