My new project
#31
My xplorer has been at the body shop for a little over two
months. I told them to take there time because I was having knee replacement surgery so I would be down for 
a while. 

Its supposed to be ready sometime this week, and I can't 
wait to get it back so I can get it done.
More pictures and updates once I get it back.

I got my Xplorer back and have been working on it, fixing everything the previous owner had screwed up. 
I'm trying to remove all of the silicone he put around the windows, and it's not an easy process.
Is there anything that I can use to help remove the silicone ?. Its been a long slow process so far.

I would like to know too. Sil(ly)icone is tough to remove. Mechanically is the only way I know. Scrape, scrape, scrape.

I read that Dow makes a silicone remover .
No experience using it but HAVE tried to completely remove silicone manually and it's almost impossible to get it all.
(Try spray painting something that you tried to remove silicone from to see if you got it all !!!)

This rig has sooooooooooooooooo much silicone on it !
I filled a 5 gallon bucket just from the stuff on the roof !

I did a lot of searching for a way to remove silicone from my RV windows, and I found it.

I came across an article that said alcohol would work in removing the silicone from the windows.
I was more than sceptical after reading this, but I figured what the hell, I have some isopropyl alcohol, so I gave it a try, and it worked. I had all of the silicone off of the window frame in less than fifteen minutes. 

The alcohol worked for me, so give it a try, hopefully it will work for you.
