    I was looking at my black dash the other day and noticed it had a very light gray tinge to it. After looking really close at it i realized that it was from overspray . I had painted my truck 4 years ago , now this overspray has been baked into the vinyl dash pad by the hot summer sun over this period of time. This is not a show truck but is instead a mud truck, therefore I never give it much thought before.
    What (if any) would be the best way to remove this haze without damaging the vinyl.

    Try Spraying it down with Armerol spray.

    Simple Green but it is harsh.

    Try Baby Wipes. They do a good job cleaning grunge.
    Cleans Baby sheet no problem.

    Rick... I actually have some of that I purchased last year. I'll have to look in the front garage and see if it's still there.
    I am going to try the baby wipes first. I will be surprised if they take that paint off.
