I LIKE TO CLEAN UP AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE WITH DRY PAPER TOWELS THEN USE WAX AND GREASE REMOVER TO GET THE REST,EVERYTHING ELSE WILL LEAVE A SOAPY RESIDUE

awsome, thnx guys will let you know and post up some pix one day....

lol ive used easy off oven cleaner b4 to eat some paint off a rear-end and a block once that shit is awsome !!!!
ive also just used water and stood the car in 3 wheel to let the water drain with the oil then i used washing detergent and a brush. but im not sure if that will work for gettin paint to stick onto the trunk pan.

lean it in 3, and im guessing youve been trying for a while, so whats left if just a film, or grime? degreaserworks, or i used Desiel Fuel, and let it sit for a bit, then pressure washed it out, let it dry and then if there is a bit still there, hopefully there isnt, break cleaner that shit out.

Starter fluid works great because it drys it up also. I used to use it all the time when I worked on cranes and lifts to find leaks. ;)
