reducing for on windsheild Sign In

Due to a poor functioning defoster on my car I am having issues with keeping the fog off the inside of my front windshield. What chemicals or such can I put on the windshield to reduce the fogging from the temps begining to drop as winter approchases?

There's really nothing you can put on the glass. If there is moisture inside the vehicle, it will be on the windshield. Your only option would be to mount an electric fan on the dash.

Rain-X makes a defogging product but defrosting it wouldn't help. What is this car anyway? Only vehicle I ever knew of with poor defrost was the air cooled VWs back when,

TMK - Corvair was close to a VW. Never had a chance to work on any Corvairs,

Well, lucky you! The generator belt was a lot of fun. Kind of like a VW on steroids. Plugs were a PIA, too.

Well, you can re ring it without pulling the engine (dropping). Rollovers aren't so bad once you get used to them. Rear wheel kicks in on a hard turn and it will sometimes go over on you. Mine is a 65 donation that came with replacement engine and new floor pans and new interior. Will take time.
