The windshield of my '86 is always getting smeared with some kinda foggy, oily stuff on the inside. I don't smell any gas or oil fumes but it always fogs up with the stuff. It takes Goof Off to get it off. Anyone encountered this before? Someone once said it's the sun bearing down on my dash. Mine's been recovered.

Even a recovered dash will outgas for a few years. Either that or it's time to quit smoking.

Heater core leaking? this usually shows up on the floor

AC drain plugged?

Use of Armour All on the dash pad doesn't help
