Subject: Re: Wax on Black Trim of 9.3


Being a professional detailer, there is no real way to remove the residue. The wax gets down into the pores of the plastic. A rubbing compound will only take down the material and leave a flat spot. The only real cure is to use a petroleum product (tire gel or tire dressing) to cover it up. I have had the best results with Meguiar's Endurance Tire Gel. It will darken the plastic giving it a "dressed" look and cover up that nasty white residue. You will most likely find that after a few applications, the residue will not want to reappear, but it will still be there. Time is the only way to remove it. Wax will disappear over time. This is why we have to keep waxing our cars. And as for using mineral spirits or turpentine on tar spots, PLEASE be careful. These products are meant to remove paint. They can also remove the protective clearcoat on the paint. If you have to remove tar and the such, try to use a citrus based solvent. There are many of them on the market. Just don't use the ones made for furniture (Minwax, Formby's, Etc.) Gary B. Freidman wrote in message <8t1ml0$iri$1nopsamraac-i-1.production.compuserve.com>... >Hi. A stupid question.
