Do you wipe off the stock thermal past for the new one? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
What I do is take a paper towel and a bottle of rubbing alcohol. Pour a little bit of alcohol on the towel and wipe the surface pretty good.

Then I go to my garage and spray it down really good with my air compressor.

Works like a champ.
