Default RE: Plane Cleaner

AFTER 20 YEARS of using windex on film coveringfound out it is not a good idea -as it will lift and open the seamsa coating of clear dope on the seams and decals will stop thatyou will not see the clear dope after it drys
before i put film on an air frame-i will coat the balsa with clear dope in any spots i know will collect the burnt fuels oila good example is the aileron seam on the exhaust side of the airframe (only applys to glo fuel )
i use silicone on my wing seat to prevent fuel and air from getting into the airframeair creates dragall my fuses are sealed as much as is possible to the outside
