Bug spray on graph

16 posts in this topic

What's the best way to remove bug spray from my graph? Nothing on the screen, but the housing has white specks kind of all over the grey(it's a Lowrance unit).

Lowrance recommends windex WITHOUT ammonia for the screens... might work for the housing too? But what I have found works the best for water spots and pretty much anything on the screen and housing is running my finger under hot water, then put a TINY drop of dawn on my finger and rubbing the screen that way, (add hot water as needed).... dry by blotting with soft paper towel and buff clean with the lowrance buffing towel that came with your unit. I have had my 334 for 3 years and it looks brand new to me!

Good luck.

Bug spray and plastic generally don't mix well. Most of the time it pits plastics so I don't think ou can remove the spots. They are probably in the unit for good.

I agree with WG, the spots are permanent. I had them on one of my sonars too and never been able to remove them.

I learned to be careful when spraying since that incident

Try this stuff. I've used it on all kinds of things and I'll say it will get the spots off. It's silly how good Koala Plastic Polish works. I used it on my old 350A that I thought was hopeless, and ended up with a like new screen. It was hopeless berfore I tried it, and it worked.

Be happy you just got the over spray on the housing, not the screen. The screen will stain permanently when exposed to insect sprays. Most all sprays can damage screens, be cautious.

If I use any bug spray in a boat, I make a point to cover my electronics with a rag or even my hat....just in case.

Any hope for it taking out scratches from an H20 screen?

I was a big sceptic (the developer is my SIL, I had to be) at first but have taken ALL the scratches off of the crystal on my watch(Omega, buy a crystal once), Made my old Gibson ES 350T look factory new and fresh, Took ALL of the haze off my 350A screen when it was 6 years old and made it look good as new, I guarentee you there was bug spray, Taken a lot scratches off of auto paint, I've cleaned head and tailights that looked like they were sand blasted to crystal clear. It has worked for me bunches. Every time I've used it has been a "what have I got to lose" situation.

Thanks for the info, brother. Could you please pm me the actual product name the administrators deleted? Thanks a ton - I need some help here.

And administrators, FM policy, in this case, prevents good information from being shared among members. He's not trying to sell the product, just telling us that product X worked on his screen to remove scratches and bug spray damage - it seems as though it would be fairly innocuous to let the product name stand in this case. Sure, policy is policy, but in terms of shutting down good info shared among members, the policy really does us no good in a simple exchange of info like this.

Constrictive Criticism: I have to agree with the above on policy. It would be nice to see this policy changed as most people are looking for information.

They left the product name in there. I think they may have just deleted a link.

My Daughter just told me your order went out yesterday, take pics. I've used it by hand with an old cotton T-Shirt and with a buffing wheel.

I have used Meguires Plastic Polish with great results on LCD screens, you can find this in the auto parts section of big box stores, or automotive stores. But ....... I don't know if it should be used on the newer TFT screens.

I don't understand the how's or why's but it's my understanding that Meguires and the others fill very well but don't really repair. I tried a lot of stuff on my guitars years ago and none of the other "scratch repair" stuff worked right, the way I expected, I had to keep re applying to keep the look. The Koala Plastic Polish is different, it works better, Barry owned a body shop in a former life and that was when he developed it I think. Ya gotta know the guy, he should'a been a chemist.

    • i think you have to put it over the limb and shimmy to the trunk by looping it through itself with  the help of the pole. but your right scoot I am confused too. I normally attch my to the trunk.
    • If the economy heats up, it gets down to a choice between rampant inflation or high interest rates.  The solution for the inflation of the 1970s  was to jack interest rates up into the teens.     What would interest payments be on $20+ trillion at 8 or 10 percent?  Or 12 or 14 percent?          
    • Which will lead to hyperinflation.   What will that look like? Well, we can try to print money like Del suggests but the evidence is that printing more money can actually make more problems.   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/18/hyperinflation-renders-venezuela-nation-broke-millionaires.html    
    • Since Bulleit was mentioned so much, I thought I'd check for it tonight when I went to get my standards.  With all the positive reviews I went to scanning the top shelf right away.  I didn't find it till I got a little lower.  I can say I was a little surprised to see it priced at $24.   What is it that everyone likes about it?  I'm curious now.  I wasn't curious enough to add it to the tab though.   By the way, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Blue Label took top honors in the price category at $99 and $209 per bottle respectively.
    • Debt to GDP at the current levels is not much of a problem if you assume interest rates will remain low and static, but there is no reason to believe they will, considering they are presently considerably lower than average historical levels.   You fail to account for any rise in interest rates in your calculations, and that is the primary reason 100 percent debt to GDP is not prudent financial policy.    
    • T   Me too.  They get the papers all soggy and hard to light.
