Default TGIF Everyone!

Just a quick hello from Knoxville TN! I was almost in celebratory mode. My car almost stayed completely dry and shiny for 7 days straight until torrential downpour came down last night. Oh well. That is what a good waxing pays off for. A couple of things I am grateful for.
1. This site. It has given me so much information about my PT that I can barely shake a stick at. Thanks to everyone for all their help.
2. I learned today how to get that damned blasted Rain-X off my windshield. I cannot wait to get it off of there and actually see out my window for once!
3. The fact that being on these forums and being able to post is absolutely FREE.

I finally got around to taking some pics of my PT this past weekend, so hopefully I will get around to posting them.

Well, if you do a forum search for "Rain-X" you will see multiple entries regarding it. I don't mind it being on my side windows, but I made the mistake of putting it on my windshield and back glass, and it just SMEARS. It forms a coating on the windshield.

Hmmm...I have been using it for years and have never had a problem. As a matter of fact my wife even askes me to put it on her car every year now at the beginning of the rainy season out here.

Rain-x is a must here in the Pacific Northwet! important to apply it properly, though.

I, too, have used Rain-X for years and never had problems. I apply it each time I wash my car, which is almost every week. True, if you over apply, you will get smears, but I just get a paper towel and buff it clear. Heck, it's hard for me to see any smears anyway, unless I catch the windshield at a certain angle. I used to apply it on all windows, but now I only apply it on the windshield and headlight and foglights. With it on, I hardly use my wipers, even on days with a drizzle, even if I'm driving slow. It even helps from the dead bugs from baking on, too.

I have used rain-x without any problems also. Love it. Hate using windshield wipers[V] It even helps keep the dog slober slide off the side windows
