polish removal

i use a cream polish, eagle one wet wax, which does a great job. only problem is when it gets on the black plastic parts. the worst bit is the surround near the wing mirrors. it leaves a white residue. does anyone know how to get rid of polish when it gets on these kind of spots?


You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.

I don't know of any really safe product to use on these bits. I do it the long way, just to be safe side: let the product dry, then use an artist's paint brush to brush away the residue.

Thumbs up Polish removal

Hey mate,

Wax & Grease remover or Prepsol will do fine, but basically straight after u have wiped that on u need to put a protectant on the rubber, as prepsol dries out the rubber making it easier to perish. I use CRC So Easy protectant as its different to Armorall, its anti-static, doesnt attract dust, and penetrates rubber nicely. Dont rub the protectant in....let it soak in by itself over a 15-20minute period, dont be scared to put plenty on, as like I said, Prepsol dries out ur rubber. But apart from that, you should be ok.


Nothing beats the sound of a V8

On black plastic or rubber parts, I use "Back to Black" made by Mothers.

It will bring ya rubbers up better than new, and its not a paint.
