Default My Heart sank!

This afternoon when I uncovered the R/T I went numb. Not only are both rockers broken but the dash was white. I have heard of some people having blotches but this is pure white. The good news is when I backed it out side the sun cleared it off like frost. It was sticky when we wiped the rest that the sun didn't reach.

Dang, that is crazy! I wonder if anyone out there in the poly industry could explain that.

No Armour all at all. I have never used anything on the dash. All we do is wipe it down with a damp rag when we wash the car.

I wonder if it was still a little damp when parked and setting in the cold made it "frost" up, or maybe high humidity in the storage building? Or maybe something in the air in the building? We park ours in a non heated garage every night, but it gets driven most every day.

I defiantly was not frost. It left a sticky or oily type film after to dissolved. I just got back from the dealer and they were shocked also. I picked up some cleaner they had to get the film off.

I was just over to my buddy's yesterday and his SRT dash is the same way. Broken rockers and all! We had several days last winter that the temps go below -30*. Many days in a row and several times.

He had an 05 300 HEMI that he traded in on his SRT. He said it did it also but not as bad and they drove that car in the winter. He said when the heater would worm the car up it would go away and be back in the morning.
