Last year at a show, I tipped a can of Coke between my e-brake and passenger seat. I pushed a wet towel down in there after tilting the seat forward and thought I got it all cleaned up. Wrong...................

When I was taking my seats and tracks out to get ready for the Miata seats, I couldn't move the passenger seat forward. I thought the tracks were jammed. Wrong again...................

When I got the seat out, I couldn't separate the track from the carpet. nor could I move the track to get at the rear bolts. I had to hold the release lever and beat the track forward with a hammer and block of wood. I finally got it forward and the bolts out, but then I had to chisel the track from the carpet to get it off.

I thought, no big deal, I'll take the carpet to the detail shop and put it through the floor mat scrubber. Three times, I did just that. Wrong again.... That junk will not come off at all. Luckily, it can't be seen until I get a new section of carpeting.

These are the pictures of what it does to metal and carpeting. I used to enjoy drinking that stuff a lot.

I used to remember seeing the seams on the
old metal cans of RC Cola - the stuff would start
eating thru the seam.I never drank any after that.

But if you get oil or grease on a windshield, the best way to get it off is to apply a little coke followed by a water rinse to get rid of the coke. Coke will cut oil as well as anything and it doesn't, if well rinsed, harm paint or chrome.

Years ago, Coke with steel wool did a great job on cleaning chrome.

Sadly, I still like drinking it.

Art,

NO ONE is crazy enough to waste beer on cleaning chrome. That's why they had to use Coke....

Pop, Soda and such is one of the main reasons for American health issues including obesity "just say no"

Now beer, that is a gift from the gods, all natural, cool and refreshing

Another good use for it was if someone spilled armoral on the floor I would poor coke over it. The only issue was it ate away the wax and took a lot of water to get rid of the residue so it would stop attracting dirt.
