Wax

Hey Guys.
This may be a little random but my girlfriend has a 03 GMC half ton. With the plastic fender flairs and she got a little carried away when she waxed it. She got wax all over the black plastic and now it all looks gray instead of black. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get that stuff off? It is driving us nuts. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

Mothers Back-to-Black had always worked for me...

Ask in the paint and Detail section. The Adams guys are there and have some great stuff, prolly better than the Mothers

It may sound crazy, but try some peanut butter. The oils inside of the PB actually help to pull about 90% of the old wax off. Work the PB with a soft bristle brush or an old tooth brush. Of course you will want to wash off any remaining residue with soap & water and then apply a vinyl trim dressing/protector to the fender flairs. I would suggest our VRT (Vinyl, Rubber, Tire) dressing. It is water-based and does not contain any harmful petroleum products. The VRT will go on dry to the touch and will not collect dust or dirt.

For more information on our VRT check out this video: http://www.adamspolishes.com/t-Videos_DVD5_13.aspx.

Please let us know how you make out and feel free to contact me if you are still having issues.



Good luck!!:Thumbup:

a quick tip for the next time is get some inch and a half masking tape and tape everything up. lots easier to clean up everything.

havent heard that trick in a long time. As a professional painter i have had to use this method , Our detailer wasnt paying attention to what he was doing with the buffer and got it all over what he wasnt supposed to get it on. It became my job to get it off. it does work. my boss saw me do it and thought i was crazy. I then showed him how to tape off all the mouldings and such with 1 1/2 inch masking tape.

or you can be like me and use turtle wax ice. With the ice you can go over the plastic and vinyl and actually wax it too. Love it on the door handles and badges. The faster i can put the stuff on and take it off the better.
