Thanks!
I treat it with Leather Master Strong cleaner or Einszett's Plastic Vinyl Cleaner.

You can try polishing it out with a glass polish like Einszett Glas Polish but I'm not sure how dead they are so its a 50 /50.

try using some detail spray and a mf towel to remove it.

a good note once you get wax on any part of the car like trim etc, try to remove it immediately.

I just got an 08 impreza 2.5i Dark grey metallic. I want to keep it shiny, and looking amazing. I am willing to put the time in, however it is keep outside not in a garage. What would you recommend for a weekly/bi weekly clean set up?

the code is nasioc. as for the mf towels the code is mfsale20.

as for the polish use the Einszett Paint or Einszett Extra.

I have a Ford F250 and was driving down the freeway when some one dropped a bucket of white paint on the freeway which I happened to be driving behind. It splattered all over my truck and just made a huge mess. I have gotten most of it off my paint, but it is also on my side mirror. The mirrors are black textured plastic, and I have not been able to get the white paint off... Do you have any suggestions to try? So far I have tried detailing spray, clay bar, and goof off. The goof off took the paint off but was also taking the black off of the plastic, so I stopped after trying it in a small spot.

Thanks!

i dont know if i should post a new thread but i need a little help. I have a 2008 sti and the front bumper as you know is low to the ground. I was parking the other day and scraped the front on some ice. These scrapes are into the clearcoat but not the paint.

I was thinking of using some meguiar's #2 then #7 and finally some #20 with a buffer. Or is there better stuff to use? Also,What kind of buffing pad should be used?

tnx.

I would say pass on the p21 taw as a daily wash it pretty strong I would use a dedicated wash like Einszett Glanz Shampoo/Einszett Perls/Adam's Car Wash etc.

Clay bar. Will make your paint smoother than ever, and ready for wax.

i have some yellow spots(i think sap) on my side skirts from driving around that i cannot seem to get off. Ive clayed the area which seems to get the actual hard globs of sap off, however, their is a yellow stain that is left behind. I have used meguiars paint cleaner and it gets some of the stain out, however, not fully out. I have attached some pictures of the gunk. Bug and tar remover doesn't phase it at all! Helpppp!!!

what clay bar are you using?

you can probably try P21S autowash followed by a clay bar then polish.

or you can get some 3m adhesive remover to try to get some of that off.

You can use some rubbing alcohol if its sap.
Its not going to take it right off, you will have to go over it a little bit.
But thats not somewhere sap can just fall onto. I never seen sap in someones wheel well. you sure its not road paint?
