Looking for experiences with EPA Title V permits

We may need to get an EPA Title V operating permit, even though we have no intention of actually emitting any pollutants. Apparently we still need it because of the amount of solvent we use in our processes might exceed 100 tons per year. There is lots of information online about the details - so there's no need to rehash that here. What I'm really looking for is practical experience from folks that have gone through the process or are already operating with the permit. [more inside]

Using Solvent to Clean Plastic

I used a solvent to clean the plastic that protects the instrument panel in my car - the plastic has gone milky and now it is very difficult to see how speedy I am driving. Is there any way to reverse the damage done? [By the way, the damage looks the same as when I cleaned a CD jewel case with a spray cleaner]
