Default White Rub Marks & Deatil Q

ok quicky

how do i get the white marks off my bumper that happened from the plasitc and rubber molding on my garage?

no matter what i do for regular rubbing, they wont come off, and i don't want to damge the finish of the black bumper cover...compound? black paint? sandpaper? a rock to break the headlight so it looks even?

the pic is not too good for showing what i am talking about but i will get abtter one if needed...



Also:

What is the best Shampoo, Polish, Wax, Wheel Cleaner and TireWet to use (brand & such) I was thinking Gold Class, the Deep Crystal System & other Meguars products for it all? anything better?

Try something like soft scrub kitchen cleaner on a sponge. Or a very fine scotchbrite pad or very fine steel wool. Rub very lightly, and I'd do it with it wetted down with some water.

if you want to quickly mask it and make your black strip look new, just rub tire shine (the clear liquid stuff, with a sponge) on it

yep, made by 'Mothers' (I'm pretty sure anyway).

I haven't used that but you could give it a try.

Liquid Glass and a claybar first. You can't go wrong, unless you drop the coin for Zaino. LG is a sealant which acts as both a wax and polish. Very nice stuff.

Well I didn't see your wash and wax question because it was below your photo. Wash with your choice of car washing sudsy stuff. Dish soap like Dawn will remove old wax, which is good if you're going to follow that up with a clay bar and Liquid Glass, which is what you should do. For tire cleaning, I've been a fan of Westley'* Bleche White for decades. (But be careful of it on alloy wheels.) For tire wet-looking stuff, take your pick. If I say Armor-All, someone here will no doubt raise a fuss about it dry-rotting tires, despite that I've used it for decades without dry-rotting my tires; so I'm NOT going to say Armor-All, OKAY?
