Beer in Dash

Me and a couple of my buddies went to Canada two years ago and on the way back my buddy was driving and my other buddy was in the passenger seat since he's 6'4 300 lbs, me and my other friend were in the jump seat. Anyway we all got 40's for the ride back to Vermont and my friend spilt his beer on my dash, now all my air vents stick and the buttons on the radio stick. Is there an easy way to take the air vents out without breaking them off?

I think that they just pop out don't they? They are pressure pins I think.

And WTF are you doing in my country?

We went to go snowboarding at Jay peak in Vermont but it was all mud so we went to Canada for the night. Not trying to start a fight but I had a terrible time they didn't like us very much.

'You know you've had too much to drink when you get pulled over and you're laughing...'
Driver: "Oh, god [email protected] am I glad to see you. I coulda killed somebody."
Cop: "Get out of the truck."
Driver: "I can't. You get in. Lemme get these bottles outta your way."
'He got in, we went to jail!'

Rodney Carrington FTMFW! ahaha


As for the beer on the dash, have you tried soapy water in a spray bottle (for the vents, not the radio)? Spray it, let it soak for a minute, then clean it up with a paper towel or wet wash cloth.

As for the radio, maybe rubbing alcohol? I have no idea on that one. Sorry.

Start by not letting your friend ride in your truck again. Then use rubbing alcohol on a q-tip. Or there is this other stuff called goo gone...works great but you have to be carefull with it.
