Windshield Fogging Up (how do i prevent it?)

Hey guys i did some searching and couldn't find a straight forward answer. I have bagged my truck and got rid of the HVAC and blower motor. Now when its cold or it rains i have a fogged up front glass. Just wanted to know what everyone uses to prevent that or do i have to just keep a rag behind the seat and do it manually?

This works. But you need to put it on 2 or 3 times. And clean the window extremely good before application.

Re: Windshield Fogging Up (how do i prevent it?)

Re: Windshield Fogging Up (how do i prevent it?)

just get a smaller blower motor and mount it under the dash and change up your heater box to fix around your wheel. its been done many times before and its not that hard

Re: Windshield Fogging Up (how do i prevent it?)

Check your local junk yard for an older 4-runner. They have a heater in the center console for the rear passengers. Not sure how it would work but I may try it myself.

no need for a drawn out butt hurt story, but you prolly just didnt get the window clean good before you used it, or didnt do the "wax on, wax off" too well. has happened to me a time or two with the regular water repelant rain x

Re: Windshield Fogging Up (how do i prevent it?)

I've used rain-x anti fog on the windshield, and rear glass of my reg cab truck i had when i didnt have the blower box on it yet..

its pretty much temporary fix.. it works decent.. but still not good enough to be a solution

Re: Windshield Fogging Up (how do i prevent it?)
