Q: Cleaning with laquer thinner

asked by on

Would you approve doing that laquer thinner tip just to clean the inside on a perfectly gorky car with 180,000 kilometers?

Sure, I do it all the time, but in your case you don’t really need to put in a strong concentration of lacquer. You could use half a gallon or two quarts to a whole tank of gasoline. I do this for my cars all of the time to clean them out. It works great.
