Sticky solution? Comments / thoughts welcome
 
So in my quest to find a solution to the sticky plastic problem I have researched many different avenues from sending parts out to "Sticky no more" to some home (And questionable) remedies. For the life of me I can't understand why Ferrari would use these products when there are so many better options on the market,.but mine is not to question why... mine is to come up with a work around. What I have found that works so far is 70% isopropyl alcohol on a microfiber rag will take off the sticky degraded plastic and leave the good plastic intact. This takes some serious scrubbing and you need to use a fresh spot in the rag with each pass. Now for the big question, once you have worked down to the good plastic, can you use a sealer like 22ple for plastic to keep it from degrading again? I have been unable to find anyone who has used a sealer on the plastic once it was stripped to determine whether or not this is a viable option or just an expensive temporary fix. I know that the alcohol fix by itself is a temporary solution and the stickiness comes back after a while is the plastic is left exposed. Theoretically, if the plastic were sealed and not exposed to the elements,it should not degrade. In closing, I am just trying to keep my center console tray from turning into the La brea tar pits again and swallowing my sunglasses. Any thoughts or personal experiences would be welcome.

It is not the plastic that is degrading, it is a "soft touch" coating they put on it. If you strip all the way to the plastic it will not return, but it will not look very good either.

If you strip all the way to the plastic it can be painted but if any of the coating remains you will just have another mess on your hands.


By the way, "Ferrari Discussion" would be a better place for a thread like this. Member Introductions is really just to introduce yourself.

Thanks Wet, For some reason I thought they were in C.A. I will give them a call. Also do you know a local shop that does tint? I am looking for 35% hybrid to cut down on the heat and hopefully prolong my dash leather.

Much, much closer than an hour away and he does great work I've been told.

Give Robbie a call; he's in Waldorf, very near you.

Porsche parts too? I've never heard or even read about that on Porsches. I had my 360 switches "un-stickied" by NJB Automotive in Westerville, OH (excellent job, BTW) but I've never seen any indication of this issue on my '97 993 S. Out of curiosity, which Porsche(s) suffer this malady.

Cheers.

Not a Porsche freak, so not sure about model tags, but it was on the A/C panels on Porsches from around 2005. including the 987 Boxster and contemporary 911s. Not sure about earlier models. The 911 and Boxster used the same climate control panel.
