After a cloudy several days, good, hopefully, for getting my sod started, we had a few hours of sunlight in the PM. It's spring and the greens were fluorescing under that sun after a few days of spotty rain and foggy mornings. Trees are leafing. Bluebonnet season has begun. Everything is growing fast. And maybe because I used some Invisible Windshield on my car, I couldn't help notice the uncommon colors on the road today - beyond the usual whites and silvers. I saw a VW Bug that looked like a new color - like Tomato soup with extra sour cream. And beside it, but only for a second, was a bright yellow Lambgoarri. Or something exotic.

The Black Bentley didn't count for color but did enhance the stretch of road several notches.

It seems that Invisible Windshield really works. (Now where did I put it? Sorry - old joke.) I once did a series of test episodes for radio syndication. In one adventure, which took place in a patent office "Pat Pending" - the guy comes in with an invisible something and hilarity ensues. There IS a product called Invisible Windshield and it seems to do the deed.

I also bought wheel cleaner - spray on, wham! Wheels cleaned of brake dust! Doesn't work. Not at all. Sucker!

But I was reminded by actually washing the car - with absolutely no beading action, (time for treatment) of some stuff I used to use before we moved - it's amazing and it works - is a polymer miracle. It's called Rejex and they use it on Helicopter Blades. Of course, when they do it goes all over so they have to use a lot.

But seriously:

RejeX is a thin-film polymer coating designed to provide a high-release surface. This very thin film – less than a micron thick – prevents stains and adhesion of common contaminants such as exhaust, bugs, oil, tree sap, bird droppings, road grime, brake dust, etc. It also makes graffiti easy to remove and can be applied to windshields to repel rain. It’s easy to apply and produces a deep, lustrous shine that outlasts the most popular waxes by months.

RejeX was originally developed for the Air Force to keep turbine exhaust gas residue from sticking to aircraft...

RejeX is the "missing link" you have been looking for when it comes to affordable, durable, long-lasting protection for your car, truck, boat, RV, airplane or motorcycle! Rest assured, RejeX is MADE IN THE U.S.A. Yeah - I figure if you can put it on a jet and run through rain at hundreds of miles an hour and it's still there, it's cool for my needs.

As they used to say, "it really really works." Should be here in a few days.

Did you know a clean airplane can fly faster than a dirty one? True. The phenom is called parasitic drag.

PS: I have fallen for almost everything over the years, every one of which claimed to clean and shine and never need anything ever after. Rejex worked well in Minneapolis - where it goes from 60 below to 100+ though not in one day... for maybe 6 months at a time. Quite different from the expensive waxes I tried too.

that was an interesting post! If it was only manageable, airport management should clean their planes more often.
