Never had any problems with the stuff from Radio Shack, But it sure doesn't hurt to cover things up a bit, makes clean up easier. And don't leave it on, I suppose it could stain over time.Remember to protect all surrounding areas with rags so as to minimize the amount of over spray on the rest of the fairing parts. That stuff can sometimes damage other parts if left on it for any length of time.
Ya; gotta just love it when things work out.Update:
I did take the trim piece off. I took out the one bolt and there was one clip on the panel that needed to be depressed(same side as bolt) and the panel slides out to the left. Then I took off the back plate to the panel. I wrapped the panel in a towel and squirted electric cleaner into the switch several times and that did it. Thanks for all the help!
