Even after 2 heavy layers of masking tape on the interior, it seems FG resin must have soaked thru & into the interior carpet.  There's no visible evidence, but the fumes are present when windows are up.

Does this stuff eventually go away and if so, how long?

Better still, is there a way to clean them?  I'm hesitant to acetone the upholestry.  Would soap & water even make a dent?

People say onion. I say just leave the window's down while driving on the freeway on a very long road trip.

I'm not fg expert by any stretch of the imagination, but I've worked with it enough to know 2 things:
1)If there is already resin on the upholestry, I couldn't imagine acetone could possibly be worse. I'd be surpised if acetone even got up fg.. I know mineral spirits don't make a dent.
2)Everytime I work with it or install something that has resin in it or on it, the smell *does* linger.. sometimes for a week or two. It'll go away.

If there is no visible evidence of resin in the carpet, then I doubt there could be resin in the carpet.
The fumes will linger for a while. They'll go away but it may take a while.

The fumes are asorbed into the entire car. Steam cleaning would help. Just keep the windows down when ever possible and give it about two weeks to clear up.

Ha ha, I did a mold in my car about 6 months ago for an amp rack I was planning on doing, did it about 9 at night, left my backpack in the car, for the next day for class, and I dont notice the smell of FG that much anymore, however, when I walked into class everyone thought someone was painting the school, as I walked in. So from that experience, it does take about 2 weeks... some people say Onion, some say apples... I used a Odor-Ban a cup of jelly looking stuff I got my from my moms paint store... worked really well..

I thrid the notion for onions. Works great for oil based paint and if you've worked with that stuff, you know it's pretty potent.

Thats weird guys I've never had that problem. But I guess it's because the sensors in my nose are all bondo'd over.
