    Okay, just want to hear what everyone's all time fav products are. I'll start off with fav.

    -Simple Green- Man, this stuff will clean just about anything! In the restoration of my truck, I must have used 2 gallons of this stuff.

    -Rubberized Undercoating-Gotta love this stuff, useful for sound deadning,rust prevention, and so on. Everywhere that is covered by carpet of panels in my truck, if you look behind you'll see this on my truck.

    -WD40- Every one knows how useful this stuff is, you can clean funk off of anything, grease something up, Anytime somethng doesn't work right spary on some WD and it'll be okay.

    -VHT Vinyl Dyes- I've dyed every panel in my truck in cluding my dash with this. I took it from ugly tan to black. It goes on easy and doesn't wear off.

    PB Blaster - breaks loose those stubborn corroded bolts and nuts!

    Krylon - scrape a tree, spray on some more!

    Brake Kleen - makes for removing grease easily and works good as a hand cleaner!

    Mobil 15w-40 motor oil - helps stop oil leaks on old worn out engines.. :)

    Formula 12/34 - will dry out anything(ie spark plug wires, distributors, etc)

    RainX- Man, I swear by this stuff. We were on the East Coast during a tropical storm and the wiper motor failed, the RainX just makes it bead right off!

    PS- check out the spinnin' Texas!

    What brand undercoating did you use? How many cans did you use for underneath the truck? I wanna do this to my truck before it becomes a rust bucket. Do you have to wear any special clothing so you don't get the crap all over your skin? I need some info before I get the stuff all over me if I attempt it.

    I forgot about the Rain-X, that stuff is awesome! I love it. Undercoating: I use whatever they sell at AutoZone, I don't have any to look at right now. You don't want to get that on your skin, it's a pain in the butt, I promise you. I use rthe rubberized kind if that helps..

    How thick of a coat of this stuff do you put on? I'd like to stop the rust before it creates holes.

    B-12 Carb cleaner. Cleans parts, brakes, carbs, not good for buffing paint though. [​IMG] without berrymans, I'd be lost.

    Many of my favorites have been mentioned, but for cleaning things....you cannot get it any better then Super Clean by castrol. I buy it by the 2.5 gallon size for the house, rig and work. It will take the wax off your truck and clean your tires leaving them look like they have been armor alled. Turn your wipers on and spray the windshield and the glare is gone along with the squeaks...

    >>Brake Kleen - makes for removing grease easily and works good as a hand cleaner!

    You might want to read the cautionary statements on the can before spraying that stuff on your hands. I don't think they intended it as a hand cleaner. It probably isn't very good for you to put it directly on your skin.

    Spend a buck, get a can of GoJo. [​IMG]

    Harry reminded me of Gojo, this stuff just makes the grease slide right off you arms. Fast Orange is also good, but I don't like the smell.

    For grease, good ol' dish soap works well. It's made to clean grease off of dishes, and it works just as well on K5 grease. =) If I'm really funky I might use carb cleaner hehe.

    Automatic transmission fluid also does an excellent job of removing really nasty grease and dirt mixtures. Gets your hands clean quickly. Then use a GoJo (or Dawn) [​IMG] to get the ATF off of your hands.

    Tow straps and tow hooks.
    Rhino Liner - great stuff, just very expensive. You'd have to use a torch or a jackhammer to get it off.
