Default What part of the WRX should I not wax?

If wax makes contact with those black plastic parts (such as stock side skirts, that small black piece in front of the rear wheels, any black parts) will it turn into white residue?

thanks,
jonathan

That is what happened to me. I read that peanut butter would get it off. I am going to try that.

If that doesn't work, add some jelly (I heard grape or strawberry works best), wipe with bread, and eat lunch!

Any black Will turn white. If you happen to get wax on those parts while you are waxing your car get it off before it turns those parts white. I've got a big white blotch on the front grill near the license plate. I'm also going to try peanut butter.

That's why everyone should use Zaino. Zaino on black parts == no problem!

Just don't get wax on your intercooler.

If you get wax on the black parts. Use a product called Black Chrome. It goes on just like liquid wax but you don't rub after it has dried. Apply & done. It is at the local parts store.

Peanut butter.

Another vote for Zaino. This is why.

An old toothbrush works for the textured parts, like the black pieces in front of the back wheelwells.

Just be careful to not rub the paint, or use a toothbrush that you'll be putting in your mouth later.

when i get that white crap on my black parts, i just put some tire wet on a rag and wipe it off. i usually wipe tire wet over all the black parts, it makes them all drak and new looking.



btw my friend waxes the windshield in his truck. seems to work well in the rain

There are some waxes that won't stain black plastic trim, but they are few and far between. If you can find S100 carnuba paste wax (check local Harley dealers, it's marketed as a "motorcycle wax"), it's one of the user-friendliest waxes I've ever used, although not the most durable. Wipe on, wait about 30 seconds, and wipe off . . . no need to let it haze, and it won't stain trim. It only lasts 6-8 weeks, but it's such a pleasure to apply that I don't mind.

For more durability with killer shine, Zaino is an excellent sealant, and it won't leave residue stains on plastic parts, either.
