View Full Version : Waxing Problems
07-01-2010, 04:39 AM
I have a NNBS Silverado and whenever I wax it no matter how hard I try I always get some wax on the plastic around door handles and mirror. My question here is there anyway I can get that wax off that black plastic without fading it or messing it up? I also have a 90 model Silverado and never had this problem with it. Trucks were made (imo) better back then. Car makers are taking the cheaper way out now to save a buck.

No joke, peanut butter. Either dap a towel in some peanut butter and massage the wax out of the plastic or use a retired tooth brush to work it out. Peanut butter is the best thing I have found to permanently remove wax from plastic parts and it won't cause fading and it isn't a cover-up like all the store products.

I think it was CKTA that brought the peanut butter method to my attention and very grateful to him I am for that.

I like to apply Back-to-Black on these trim pieces before waxing. You might also try FX SynWax which doesn't stain the trim. Both are from Mothers.

gm makes a clading kit to remove the wax, its a 2 step cleaner that works great.

I use a Ladybug steam cleaner, just takes a few seconds to remove the wax.
