settle down a little homie
WD-40 Main ingredients, from the material safety data sheet, are:
50%: Stoddard solvent (mineral spirits, also commonly known as dry cleaning solvent)
25%: Liquefied petroleum gas (presumably as a propellant, carbon dioxide is used now to reduce considerable flammability)
15+%: Mineral oil (light lubricating oil)
10-%: Inert ingredients
and also, if your air compressor blows out moisture something is wrong with it. (when you compress air, the moisture condenses out. thats why your defroster uses the A/C compressor to dry
moisture off your windshield.
as for the aircompressor method, I'll be the first to admit its a little shady. let it be known though that its popular among nissan technicians, one of which was the person who originally published it on this forum (not that I particularly trust nissan techs).
