    Hi Guys
    I have just purchased some speaker rings for my 09 Accord. The problem is that when it was prepped for sale the dash, door cards seem to have been sprayed in silicon spray polish this is now causing the speaker rings not to stick on the door.
    Any idea how to remove this polish? Tried IPA, and meths.

    IPA and methylated spirits are both alcohols. I would stick to IPA as it is purer - meths has many additives.
    I had an issue with one ring and used a small amount of White Spirit on clean tissue about 2-3 times and then IPA twice to get the WS off. The ring has stayed on even when the car got pretty hot during the summer.
    Also, make sure you use new trim adhesive foam as the old ones will be contaminated with the silicone polish.

    Post #33 on my Project Log may help.

    Let us know how you get on.
