Cup- 2k New Beetle GLS/ 'Chino- 13 Beetle 2.5
Pardon me for being skeptical, but i'm not buying that product as convincing. The interior of the new beetle is beyond a sticky film, but a degredation of an applied surface known as a "soft touch" interior.StickyNoMore: Fixing sticky dashboard/ melting dashboard. Easy and safe way - YouTube
I got the same problem and found this on the youtude, a non corrosives treatment and it removes the sticky residues within mins.
this is for those who needs help on sticky interior to share.
Be it known, from experience of many orgers who've posted in these forums, that the sticky will emerge again & the soft touch will continue to break down until removed. Furthermore, if anyone tries to paint their interior surfaces using the "sticky no more" method, will discover the bubbling of their newly painted surface, for the paint has been applied to the soft touch finish & not on the plastic substrate, which is the bare surface in which primer and paint is to be applied. Basically, you're painting over a poor grade of rubber, which wlll break down when the primer & paint is applied. The keytones in the paint will eat up the rubbery stuff in a New York minute, frustrating the painter over their ruined work, having only to paint again.
Do the job right and strip the rubbery stuff off the dash and panels.
This product probably works well for a non-new beetle car. Until I see this YouTube video demo demonstrated on a new beetle, I'll remain skeptical.
Our new beetles aren't your everyday, blanket statement-oem car. This vid was posted as though it is. And by the looks of the one & done post of this quoted vid.... this smells like spam.
Prove me wrong & i'll retract with my apologies.
